Draw Tip Tuesday – One color makes SO many shades!

Posted by Koosje Koene in ArtJournal, Draw Tip, Draw Tip Tuesday, sketchbook on November 20, 2018

Welcome to Draw tip Tuesday!

Our color palettes are filled with so many pretty colors. But what happens if you choose just one single color and paint with that?

Especially with watercolors, just by simply adding water to the paint incrementally, and you can create shades from very dark to very light.

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.
