How it works:
- You will see lots of artists here holding brushes who seem to be painting portraits.
- For some, this is an act to sell “oil paintings” which are actually photocopies on a special kind of paper which absorbs ink resulting in the watercolor effect.
Places to beware:
- Rome: Piazza Navona
What to do:
- You can still buy it as a souvenir, as long as you know what you are really getting.
