The Importance of Space

Is the hair in this sketch exaggerated?  It’s hard to say. This woman (a contestant on “Project Runway”) had mounds and mounds of curly hair. So much hair, in fact, often not tied back, that I wondered how she got any work done without it always getting in the way. But remember that thought comes […]

9 x 12 inch sheet of recycled watercolor paper with a quick ink sketch (dried out pen) from imagination. I was thinking about portrait composition with people and animals.

Cynicism, Hope, and Painting’s Life Lessons

Above: Sketch of Dick sitting in the TV room next to a bright light. Read below for details. Friday was movie night and we watched “Welcome to Happiness.” It’s a quirky film that doesn’t have super heroes, mutants, or trips into galaxies far, far away. I enjoyed almost every moment, though more than once I […]

Moleskine Myths: They Open Flat?

Above: A quick sketch of Dick sitting on the TV room couch next to a bright light. I worked in a new Moleskine with the whiter, more absorbent paper.

Why I Love Gouache

Above: Pentel Pocket Brush Pen sketch in a Japanese Lined Journal. This sketch was made on a spread first covered with Montana Acrylic Marker and washi tape.

Sometimes Roz Stays Up TOO Late

Above: Sketch of Christopher Eccleston in “Fortitude.” Pentel pigment brush pen and watercolor washes in a Flex Book Sketchbook (8.5 x 12.5 inches) Shhhhh!!! Don’t tell Dick, but sometimes when he goes to bed before I do I stay up and watch new shows I know he would have no interest in. That’s all fine, except […]
