Painting the Taj Mahal in 10 minutes (ish)

Well, this method of 'cheating' as an artist covers painting with just 2 colours, ultramarine and burnt umber. I also use white at the end for picking out some highlights. The Graphite paper is ideal for this type of use, you can quickly transfer an image, and the graphite is the same stuff pencils are made of. I will talk more about the process in future posts. For now just watch the video, please have a go yourself, I would love to post images others make using my methods. Feel free to comment.

Watercolour set- Good price!!
