In Context—Working in a Series While Coughing

I managed to catch a cold bug and then come down with bronchitis so coughing has made sketching a bit difficult this fall. (Gasp, there have even been some missed days!) Today’s image is an example of the type of thing I’ve been up to. Thank goodness for the Sktchy App when you’re ill. So […]

Using Photoshop to Quickly Change Background Colors in a Scan

Sometimes you finish a sketch and you wonder, what would happen if I did “this” or “that.” But maybe you don’t want to try “this” or “that” because you don’t want to lose what you already have. I tend not to use Photoshop to change my sketches just because I prefer to work with natural […]

Housekeeping on Roz Wound Up

So I’m wondering how many readers know I have a newsletter? Since launching the new platform I’ve tried to do a newsletter every four to six weeks. The newsletter deals with information that I think my blog readers would enjoy—information on art-related books, art materials and so on. To make it interesting and non-repetive for […]

Carl Has Come Home

Confused about Carl Too (see Friday) and Carl? Carl was my first Giganotosaurus model. He’s a Schleich, but he’s really large. I’ve never seen another one of their models be this large. He’s the only one I’ve seen in person. The last at the hobby store and then there were none. But I’ve enjoyed sketching […]

Hanging Out with Carl Too

If the posts seem short this week it’s because it’s State Fair Prep all week for me in my spare time. I wanted to have posts queued up so that I could focus on the Fair and not think about the blog. Enjoy the short posts while you can. I’ll be verbose after Labor Day […]

The Great Minnesota State Fair Sketch Together Is Almost Here!

The name has changed slightly but don’t be confused, the best sketch out of the year still offers the same great fun—two sketch out days to choose from (attend them both if you can); four fun meetings to attend and meet other sketchers, and a whole world of live subjects to sketch and interesting buildings […]

Getting Used to New Glasses

Since April I’ve been getting used to a new prescription in my glasses. This is always a stressful time. Since March I’ve had two new pairs of glasses—the first pair didn’t work at all (everything in the close vision was double!). Because I was working around the clock in the middle of two projects and […]

A Look at My Sketching Set Up for International Fake Journal Month

While working on image 30 on April 30, 2017 for this year’s International Fake Journal Month Journal I thought it would be fun to take couple photos of my sketching set up to include in my project. Last week, while trying to make the gallery of images work I forgot to add the set up […]
