Art Holiday Accommodation in SW France Details

Maddie wanted to do a fashion drawing. So she found a photo she liked in a magazine, and I showed here how to scale it up using a very simple grid formula.
Here's what she did. First she drew a grid on the original. Then she drew a larger grid on a piece of watercolour paper.
Then, one by one, she transferred what she saw in each of the squares on the photograph, from the photograph onto the paper. (This allows the artist to see and draw very simple areas one at a time.)
Then she painted the image in watercolour.
Not bad for a first watercolour. What do you think?
