Draw Tip Tuesday: Does it Matter What Kind Of Colored Pencils You Use?

Welcome to Draw Tip Tuesday!

There are many different qualities of colored pencils.
Even though you can get by with your regular set of colored pencils, that you just might own, you do need to get to know your colored pencils. Just to give you an idea of different kinds of colored pencils that there are out there, I just want to show you the differences between super cheap (low quality pigments, more binder) and quite expensive (less binder, high quality pigments).

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.
