India Ink!

Posted by Koosje Koene in Draw Tip, Draw Tip Tuesday on January 12, 2021

Welcome to Draw Tip Tuesday!


Today, let’s work with grey tones and black line.

With India ink, you can create an endles range of grey tones, and because it is waterproof, you can draw, and glaze to create a nicely layered and vivid piece of art.

Trust the process, be courageous, practice making washes and layers of glazing, and just have fun playing with ink!

-Watercolor Paper, cold pressed, 300 g/m2
-India Ink -Dip Pen
-Watercolor Brush (Raphael #0 Softaqua Petit-Gris imitation squirrel 805)

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.
