Posted by Koosje Koene in Draw Tip, Draw Tip Tuesday on March 9, 2021

Welcome to Draw Tip Tuesday!


Let’s talk about foreshortening; the distorting that we see, when things are in perspective and overlapping. It can be very confusing and even a little bit scary. Today, I will model for you and together we will look at ways to use negative spaces and lights and darks and to trust our eyes.

Materials used:
-Seawhite of Brighton  A3 Sketchbook
-Caran d’Ache Luminance colored pencil, color: violet

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.
