Another Thought About the Fluid Easy-Block Hot Press

Left: Not a zombie. A 9 x 12 inch brush pen and light gouache wash sketch. I have to say that the Fluid Easy-Block 140 lb. HOT PRESS paper I wrote about the other day has a real affinity for the Pentel Pocket Brush Pen. However, even with only light washes that partially cover the […]


Fluid Hot Press Watercolor Paper

Left: Quick sketch made using a brush pen and left over gouache. Even better, scroll down into the post and click on the detail image. I’ve written about Fluid Watercolor paper before. You can get it in Easy-blocks, and in wire bound journals. It’s acid free and 140 lb. Since they introduced their new 100 […]

Raising Roz

Above: Sketch of Dick sitting in the TV Room. I used a fiber tipped brush pen filled with Platinum Carbon Black ink, and some left over cobalt blue and English red earth gouache (Schmincke). It's in a 7 x 7 inch book I made with Nideggen paper. (I started another one after I finished the […]

I don’t know how that got started or how it really works (if it's linked to some trigger). But I […]


Housekeeping on the Blog: An Interview List

Above: 9 x 12 inch page from my 2015 Minnesota State Fair Journal. (TH Saunders/Waterford 140 lb. Hot Press watercolor paper—Cheap Joe's American Journey Watercolor Sketchbook. Schmincke Pan Watercolors, and Sensei calligraphy pen, probably 02.) Today I added a new sidebar element on the blog: "Interviews with Roz." I have listed the title of the […]


Which Dog Are You Feeding?

Above: Sketch made with the Pentel brush pen with pigmented ink and color added with various acrylic markers. (Japanese Lined Journal, slightly grey paper, approx. 8.75 x 11 inches.) I used this sketch from my journal to day because it shows my Editing Eye in action, not content to stop at a really bad drawing, […]


Drawing Even When Everything Seems “Mundane”

Above: My first sketch of my new triceratops Des. He’s on the shelf above my head, with Carl. I used a Pentel Pocket Brush Pen on Nideggen paper in an 7 x 7 inch square book I’d made. The background is Montana Marker. I decided not to finish drawing Carl because I liked the negative […]
