Draw Tip Tuesday – Gouache Sticks!

Welcome to Draw tip Tuesday!


I have found some new art toys. In the Netherlands, I have never seen them in a shop, but I have seen artists using them and becameintriguedd by these magic sticks that look like glue sticks but are little containers of very bright colors.

I was lucky enough to find a pack of these (not expensive at all! And to be found in the kids arts and crafts section), and add them to my art tool arsenal.

In today’s video, I’ll show you why I think they’re so awesome.

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.
