Welcome to Draw Tip Tuesday!
Don’t you just love snooping through other people’s pencil cases? And I’ve had quite a few questions lately about the materials I use, so I thought I’d give you a little peek into my sketchbag today.
The contents of my Sketch bag always change a little bit over time. I add something, and then something else has to go, because otherwise the bag will be too full. I could get a larger sketch bag of course, but I don’t want to waste any valuable draw time by linguering over which of the many tools I should use. I want to just pick up a tool and start drawing right away!
So there’s today’s tip for you: yes, art supplies are great, but narrow them down as well, so your drawing time is spent on drawing and not on fiddling around and being indecisive.
Hi I'm Koosje. I'm an illustrator and art teacher in Amsterdam, where I was born and raised. I went to school to study graphic design, then worked for ten years as an award-winning professional photographer. But eventually my love of drawing and painting took over and I became an illustrator. My illustrations have been published in many Dutch magazines and in 2011, I began blogging and started developing and teaching online art classes. In 2014 I founded Sketchbook Skool, which is a flourishing community of artists from around the world of all skill levels. View all posts by Koosje Koene
