The Blues? No Way!

Posted by Koosje Koene in Uncategorized on December 31, 2015

It’s been a while since I’ve drawn with a ball point pen, even though it is still one of my favorite art tools!

And you know, drawing can be done anywhere. Also in bed. I added a bit of blue watercolours too.20151219inbed

This drawing was a ‘quickie’, while sipping hot tea on the terrace of the restaurant near my home. It was a lovely sunny December day – hard to believe it’s winter!20151220_street

So. Nope, luckily I don’t have the blues, not in the negative sense of the word!

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.
