Watercolor Markers

Welcome to Draw Tip Tuesday!

We all have art supplies that we once bought for some reason (just because they look so cool is a completely legitimate reason), but didn’t know how to make use of them. They gather dust or are forgotten in a drawer.

Until we see someone use them and then it makes perfect sense. I was inspired by Carlos Aponte, who teaches in ‘People Drawing people’ at Sketchbook Skool, to dig up my Ecoline brush markers and explore!

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.
