A Different Sort of Wizard—Special Circumstances

  Today seemed a good day to share another one of my wizard paintings because, well next month (April) on my Patreon blog I’m going to be sharing the full, realtime version of this sketch as a secondary demo. (You can already see the sketch silent and sped up to only 3 minutes long on […]

Here's a little close up of the face. I'm not a fan of the Arteza watercolor journals. They are about 9 x 11 inches so a nice page size—but the watercolor paper is poor grade student watercolor paper. Still I had them around and I just go carried away in it!

Working with a Secondary Triad: Another Wizard

Yes another wizard portrait.  I have been sketching a lot lately with the same green, orange, and mixed purple triad. This is one of the recent sketches. I’ve been focusing on the point to my Patreon/RozInterim subscribers that painting is more fun if you mix colors from a harmonious few. If you would like to […]

Yet Another Wizard

  Yes another wizard; this is one of my favorites. I’ve been having tons of fun painting wizards in-between the demands of downsizing. Tired of sorting papers to put into storage? Go sketch a wizard.  At the end of this post you can also see the full-page spread where this portrait was sketched. And on […]

FAQ—So What Pigments Do You Actually Use Roz?

“So what pigments do you actually use Roz?”—it’s something I’m asked all the time. I was asked again this Sunday during my Patreon Webinar. I had two travel palettes out on my desk, one with 26 pans, one with 27 pans. I was bemoaning the loss, through miss-packing of a storage box, of a third […]

Color Notes

  Often I’ll make my color notes on the same page spread when I’m working. This is a brush pen sketch and watercolor in an Arteza Watercolor sketchbook that’s about 9 x 11 inches. (You can read my review comments about this sketchbook by using the keyword in this blog’s search engine. Basically, not a […]

Update on the Stephen Quiller Color Theory Books I’m Always Recommending

      Nothing is ever actually straightforward or simple.   Of course now buying Stephen Quiller’s books on color theory now falls into that category.   As far as I know he has the following two books on color theory:   Color Choices: Making Color Sense Out of Color. Note that this is a […]

Working with Analogous Colors

Late at night, relaxing and watching British comedy shows I simply have to sketch. This sketch from December 2019 is an analogous color sketch of Johnny Vegas when guesting on “QI.” Everyone needs to watch “QI.” It’s vastly fun, entertaining, and sometimes you even learn something. (Stephen Fry hosted for a number of seasons and […]

Seeing Color In Faces When Painting

In this sketch from August 2019 I played with large flat brush to lay in mostly transparent washes of watercolor.   I was watching TV late in the evening and the actor Anna Chancellor came on. I paused the TV because I wanted to work on the angles of the planes of her face and particularly […]

Watercolor Palette Update

  Yesterday I decided it was time to tune up my watercolor travel palette. Before the Fair this year I took pan colors off two squarish palette boxes (Schmincke). I consolidated some of the pans into a smaller palette I could use at the Fair—I wanted to carry as little as possible. Since the Fair […]
