Hungry for creative inspiration? Learn how to draw your food with this Sketchbook Skool Study Hall video.

In this week’s Polishing klass, food illustrator Matthew Midgley demonstrated watercolor techniques to create drawings of food that look not only realistic, but luscious. It only makes sense that Sketchbook Skool co-founder Koosje Koene would want to try Matthew’s tips out; after all, she teaches a whole Sketchbook Skool kourse on food illustration, Draw It Like It’s Hot.

In this video, Koosje draws a traditional Dutch lunch of herring with pickles and onion. Have your sketchbook (and a snack) handy while you watch!
