Does your Subject Matter really Matter?

Posted by Koosje Koene in Draw Tip, Draw Tip Tuesday, sketchbook on January 26, 2021

Welcome to Draw Tip Tuesday!


How important should you make your decision on what to draw? Today, I am drawing a glass filled with paint brushes, just because it’s right there in front of me and I want to scratch the itch; I just want to draw!

If you think about WHY you draw, then choosing WHAT to draw gets easier. That way you’ll spend less time overthinking, and more time drawing!

In today’s video, I make a few quick decisions mid-drawing and talk about the process.

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.
