Forget Perspective

Posted by Koosje Koene in Draw Tip, Draw Tip Tuesday, sketchbook on August 18, 2020

Welcome to Draw Tip Tuesday!


Last week we used crayons to draw a still life, and I realize that even when playing around, capturing perspective can be tricky.So today, let’s do another still life – I am using the same one as last week – and play some more.Today we are going to ignore perspective and prove to ourselves that a drawing doesn’t have to have the right perspective to make really good sense.

Used Materials in this video:

-A5 Hahnemühle Nostalgie sketchbook
-Daniel Smith watercolors
-Sailor fountain pen with Calligraphy nib, filled with Platinum Carbon Black ink.

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.
