Draw Tip Tuesday – Big Shape First!

Welcome to Draw Tip Tuesday!

When drawing, it’s easy to get caught up in the details. You loose track of where you are and your proportions might be completely ‘off’. Or, even worse – you don’t even get the chance to get caught up, because you feel a little overwhelmed and don’t know where or how to begin.
I have a very cool trick for you, that you can use when you’re a beginner, but is also a great technique for the more advanced.

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.
