How to Use a Limited Palette

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

Welcome to Draw Tip Tuesday!

When you use a limited palette, you add a fun extra creative challenge.
Pick your favorite colors, or colors that combine well or contrast nicely.

Alternate your colors for a nice cadance between the colors. Be inventive, follow your intuition to gat a balance between the colors. I am drawing an interior from imagination – you could also draw from observation with your two colors. It’s fun!

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.
