Draw Tip Tuesday — About Drawing with a Calligraphy Pen

Posted by Koosje Koene in Draw Tip, Draw Tip Tuesday, sketchbook on April 13, 2021

Welcome to Draw Tip Tuesday!

Today I will show you how and why I love to draw with my Sailor fountain pen with calligraphy nib. I will also talk about my favorite waterproof ink that is safe to use in fountain pens. And, of course (and you know this),  it’s all about taking time to draw, and in the end it doesn’t matter which tool you do it with. Make a quick little drawing today, and have fun!

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.
