Posted by Koosje Koene in ArtJournal, Draw Tip, Draw Tip Tuesday, sketchbook on August 14, 2018

Welcome to Draw Tip Tuesday!

Like last week, I have asimple trick for you to add a surprising textural effect to your watercolor washes – using salt!

So find yourself some sea salt, rock salt, kosher salt, table salt or whatever salt you can get your hands on and start adding it to your watercolor wash for an amazing texture!

There’s more where this came from! Follow me on YouTube by clicking here

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.
