Print out the design. Shade over the back of the template with a soft pencil (e.g. Lumograph B6).
Fix the template (front side up) to the top corners of the paper using masking tape. Next, go over the design with a sharp HB pencil, so as to transfer the design onto the watercolour paper. Before you remove the template, lift it up from the bottom corners to check that you have transferred all the lines.
Go over the banner, title, quantities and fine lines with the black pigment liner with a line width of 0.1 mm. Use the black pigment liner with a line width of 0.3 mm for the big glass and the food.
Use the coloured pigment liners for the word HOMEMADE and the food lettering.
Now colour in the food, the banner and the title with watercolour pencils. Make the title multi-coloured. For each letter, use yellow at the top, then orange, red and brown, and blend the colours together.
Then colour in the background around the drink very gently in light blue.
Next add water to the colours with a thin brush and leave to dry.
What you need
