Paint/sketch portraits for tourists visiting the area
If you live in a tourist area and have a talent for drawing, produce ‘lifelike’ portraits for passers-by using a variety of mediums. Incorporate some local background features such as a bridge, tower, etc. to help them remember their stay or to hang in their lounge area.
Tourists will pay good money to see real art being made on the spot. Use styles and techniques that will help you create artworks quickly. These people have places to visit, so you have to be done within 30 minutes. Practice as frequently as you can before going to the streets to sketch. Display other pieces that you can sell on the side, such as portraits of local landmarks or famous places in your city.
