Adding Limited Color to your Drawing

Posted by Koosje Koene in Draw Tip, Draw Tip Tuesday, sketchbook on June 23, 2020

Welcome to Draw Tip Tuesday!

I love line. Line is the basis of drawing. And then the drawing can even come more to life when you add color. It’s tempting to color your drawing as if it was a colouring page. Neatly colouring inside the lines, painting each part of the drawing. But white can be a color too!
And by limiting your color, you can make your drawing look more interesting and you can put a lot of focus on just part of your drawing.

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.
