Posted by Koosje Koene in Draw Tip, Draw Tip Tuesday on June 18, 2019

Welcome to Draw Tip Tuesday!

This week, the new Sketchbook Skool kourse Colored Pencils has started! So if you haven’t already, then dust off your pencil case, get your sharpener out (I showed you how to sharpen last week, so you should be good to go!), and join me in klass

There are no rules for making art – and how you make art. So, when it comes to holding your pencil: everyone ha their own comfortable way of writing and drawing. But is it the same for writing and drawing? And what happens if you hold your pencil close to the tip, or further back? I’ll sow you in today’s video. And…

Today’s Draw tip Tuesday is live on YouTube!

It’ll be at 17:30 Central European time / which is 11:30AM EDT if you’re in the US.

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.
