ArtISTS THAT I FOLLOW*

We obviously all have different tastes and styles that catch our eye but I know even if I'm not particularly drawn to or work in a certain style there's always something to learn from other artists. That never means to steal even if Picasso said "good artists borrow, great artists steal."

*a lot of the artists below have Domestika courses that I have taken. I don't get anything from Domestika in case you're wondering.

Koosje

Koene

@koosjekoene is another urban sketcher but also so much more. I love her looseness with ink and watercolour but she also works in mixed media. Her Draw Tip Tuesdays on YouTube are great. She also offers workshops in person and online.

Maru

Godas

@marugodas is also an urban sketcher (I know there seems to be a theme!). I love her bright colours. She tends to work in mixed media with gouache and acrylic being a go-to. I've also taken her gouache and bookbinding Domestika courses.

Eleanor Doughty

@herbcoil Yep, you guessed it another urban sketcher. I've also taken her Domestika course and once a month she and Jenny Adam do a Zoom live Street View World Tour draw along often with guests doing demos.

Laura McKendry

@lauramckendry_artI love, love, love this artist's work. Her style is so loose and beautiful. I especially love her animal and bird illustrations. I found out about her through Domestika. She also offers courses at her studio in London, UK.

@lapinbarcelona Simply known as Lapin, this French illustrator is based in Barcelona. He usually focuses on urban sketching/reportage work in his staple old French ledgers as his sketchbooks. And yes, he has courses on Domestika
