Welcome to Draw Tip Tuesday!
I often get the question: “where do you start on the page, when you are drawing a scene, drawing on location?” Of course it depends on the subject, but I do have a trick I use quite often to help me understand proportions and how to fill the page. Today I will demonstrate how you can use the foreground of your subject to get your proportions just right.

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. View all posts by Koosje Koene
