Welcome to Draw Tip Tuesday!

I got a request to explain how to paint skin color with watercolor. Of course, a general skin color just doesn’t exist. Everybody has a different color of skin, and even so, it’s more about value or tone.

Every artists uses different mixes and methods for skin tone.

Today I’ll explain how I use watercolors when I draw people.

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.
