Creating Your Own Inspiration

Draw Tip Tuesday: How to Draw Your Hand


Nothing to draw? In this week’s Draw Tip Tuesday video, Sketchbook Skool co-founder Koosje Koene shows you that there’s always a model waiting to pose for you, right at the end of your arm.

We use them every day, we pick up our art supplies and sketch with them, and hands make great subjects for drawing, too. By sketching your hand, you can practice using negative space, shading, hatching, and turning off the part of your brain that says “fingers” and just drawing the shapes you see.

Seeing, rather than thinking, is a big part of learning to draw and improving your sketching skills. Looking at things the way artists do, breaking them down into shapes, marks, and shades, is so important we made a whole Sketchbook Skool kourse about it. It’s called Seeing, and you can click here for a preview.
