Drawing a picture: a few strokes or lines to paint a picture
Drawing an outline: sketch outline, then paint
Using a medium of your choice: watercolor, gouache, watercolors, graphite, gouache by hand, watercolors by water, etc

If possible, make this a regular thing
The only requirement for finishing is that you find a way to light the picture using different shades of paint
You can use any type of paints as long as they are light enough!
