Draw Tip Tuesday – How To Draw A Repeating Pattern

Posted by Koosje Koene in ArtJournal, Draw Tip, Draw Tip Tuesday, sketchbook on September 12, 2017

Welcome To Draw Tip Tuesday!

Sometimes you just don’t feel inspired. You have no ideas. here’s a tip that can really change your mindset: start making marks. pick up a pen and just doodle. Draw lines, do a bit of stippling, draw random shapes, draw circles and make them stick together, just make some marks. This is not a drawing you’re making, you’re just moving your pen around and it might help you bring new ideas to your sketchbook.

And with an idea like that, you can jump right onto the next page and fill it! I’ll show you how.

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.
