First, I take a photo of my unpainted stone and upload it to the computer. (I planned to paint a cat on this stone but wasn't sure how to place the features.)
Tip: If you right-click on an image and choose "Edit" the image will automatically open in MS Paint.
I then use the brush feature to sketch a simple design onto the stone.
I find it much easier to paint my rock once I've planned out the idea on the computer first.

I use MS Paint for Windows 7, but any graphics painting program should work with this technique.
