What’s on Patreon/RozInterim in April 2024?

Over on my Patreon/RozInterim site this month I’ve got a dog portrait demo during which I discuss holding shapes in your mind, and playing with temperature and color. You can check it out by subscribing at the link in the first paragraph. I hope you get a lot of sketching done this weekend!

I Sneak a Little Azure Cobalt in…

  I can’t help myself. I seem to always sneak in a little Azure Cobalt (Schmincke).  There’s a green shirt, sneak some in. There’s a shadow on the neck, under the eyes, in the hair, sneak some in. It leaves such wonderful granulation. And then that brings us to green gold. I am powerless to […]

A Watercolor Pigment List Correction that Needs Its Own Post

Normally when I catch an error in one of my posts I simply fix it in the post and put an update note at the top of the post. I make errors for all sorts of reasons. But in my “Patience in Watercolor” post from October 23 I simply didn’t go back and reread it […]

Liner Brush Test Sheet

Most of  you might not want to wait until I finish testing all the liner and rigger brushes I’m going to be testing to hear which is my favorite. Frankly I don’t know how long this project is going to take me.  So in the interim I’m posting my initial test sheets (which are two […]

Direct Brush Painting with a Liner Brush

I admit it. I love experimenting. I had a new paint from Schmincke—Ocean Grey. I had a wonderful face reference from Sktchy. And I had a LINER BRUSH! Note: There are liner brushes and rigger brushes. They are and aren’t interchangeable. Both are long-tipped. If you want a long brush to apply paint it might […]

Let the Color Palette Carry the Emotion

Sometimes the subject you want to capture requires you have bold lines, so you pick a bold brush pen. Perhaps there is an emotion in a person’s face that you want to capture? Then it’s important to let the color palette choices you make support that. Here’s a very angry woman. The bright colors of […]

Another Look at a Watercolor Triad

I don’t really have much more to say about the Green, Purple and Orange triad I’ve been using for the past couple of months, except to say that I’ve enjoyed the versatility of it. I’ve sketched light furred dogs and black and white dogs, and people with all different skin tones. It has been fun […]

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 […]
