I sometimes use the pencil, ink sketch or oil painting of the paint.net program that I downloaded. It does not look exactly like this. In paint.net you work with layers and then merge them together. I learned to use it with the free online tutorials.

Best of luck.

Andy usually did silk screen prints, which are a lot easier than a lithograph. To do a lithograph, you have to grind a stone plate, draw the image on without making any mistakes, then etch it with acid.
In silk screen, you adhere a film image to a fabric, then squeegee paint through the fabric onto the paper. Wherever the film is, there will be no paint. For multiple colors, you do this several times, with different film parts.
