Draw Tip Tuesday: Paint First, Draw Later

Welcome to Draw Tip Tuesday!


Let’s draw our hands again, like last week.

But now we are using a completely different technique: we will start with paint first, and then draw. It allows you to work quickly and to capture the overall shape without getting caught up in the details.

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.
