Television Recommendation—Dead Still

I’ve been meaning to recommend “Dead Still” for over a year. This show popped up on Acorn.  It’s about a postmortem photographer working in the late 19th century in Ireland. There are some very interesting characters, a mystery about the man’s past which runs through the whole season, and incredible set decoration, wardrobe, and hairstyles. […]

The April Demo—Thinking About Pattern and Texture in the Design of a Painting

This month on Patreon I do a graphite and watercolor portrait. I use this portrait to begin a discussion on thinking about how the texture of brush strokes and the use of pattern and other textures in a painting impact the readability of that painting. The discussion will continued in May when I look at […]

What’s Going on at RozWoundUp?

  I have been dealing with a frustrating tech issue for the past three weeks. Posts here on RozWoundUp are going to be short “image and very little text” with intermittent posting, until I get this resolved. My Patreon site will go on pretty much as normal. The equipment I ordered to resolve this issue […]

In Context—Just for Fun

Somedays my eyes do better than others. The double vision isn’t as bad and I even sketch without my glasses, getting something that comes close to what I saw. Even in 2019 I was learning to live with the absence of dependable and repeatable results. Then it would drive me nuts and I would mutter […]

In Context—Looking At Details

These are some quick sketches of strong man Eddie Hall from 2019. I used a Pentel Brush pen and ink wash on the verso page. The recto page uses the same brush pen but watercolor. These sketches are in a commercially bound journal with green-lined pages. The smooth paper is something that I enjoy working […]

Another Alun Armstrong Sketch

Here’s another brush pen and ink sketch of Alun Armstrong.   A wonderful set of dundrearies. Are they talked about as a set ? What is the related hairstyling vocabulary? Well, something to ponder, along with that wonderful hairdo. #MarchIsSketchAlunArmstrongMonth

Another Peek into “Bleak House”

In February I was sketching a lot of other folks besides Alun Armstrong. Here’s a sketch of Timothy West from “Bleak House.” I really can’t resist dundrearies!

A Little Bit of TV for the Pandemic

I’ll have more to say about television for the Pandemic, but today I want to recommend something I watched while recovering from cataract surgery in 2019. If you haven’t watched it now would be a good time: “Godless.” (On Netflix.) Scott Frank who created and wrote “Queen’s Gambit” wrote it. It’s a Western. The acting, […]

It’s Official #MarchIsSketchAlunArmstrongMonth

Yep, #MarchIsSketchAlunArmstrongMonth. It seems the best way to improve the current situation. I woke up this morning to icy rain. By the time I finished cycling (inside of course) there were fat, light flakes of snow falling quickly past the window behind me.  The Minnesota State site for Covid vaccination eligibility said it would be […]

Feeling Around A Face

I did this sketch of Bill Bailey in a hand bound journal I’d made with 90 lb. watercolor paper (8 inches square).  I was watching one of the several British comedy shows he turns up on—which is the best way for a US-based viewer to catch him. (It was probably an episode of QI which […]
