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 […]

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 […]

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 […]

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 […]
