Making Pamphlet Books

This weekend I posted my six-part video class on making pamphlet books. This was originally a free class I had available for several years on my Ruzuku teaching platform—when that was active. I’m going into the new year with some suggested projects for my Patreon subscribers and I realized while making examples to discuss and […]

Useful Painting Tools: The Mouth Atomizer

As painters we do love our gadgets. But I like to find workhorse gadgets that have many applications and help me create an unusual texture or approach, while also speeding things up. The mouth atomizer is good for all that. It’s the perfect tool for artists who don’t own, or don’t want to deal with, […]

On Patreon August 2023—Filberts

This month on Patreon-RozInterim I’ve been discussing and demonstrating the use of Filberts. Filberts are my favorite brush type for watercolor, gouache, or acrylic paint. I like them for a host of reasons but two stick out: They give me push back with the paint and I love that. They keep me from getting as […]

The Hocoro Fude Dip Pen From Sailor

A student wrote to me a few weeks back about a recently released dip pen—the Hocoro Fude Dip Pen from Sailor. I have fude pens from Sailor already. I use Platinum Carbon Black ink in them. It’s a pigmented black ink that will not clog fountain pens. I have had great success with it in […]

Blick’s White Sulphite Drawing Paper

The other day a friend stopped over with some of Blick’s White Sulphite Drawing Paper. She was going to do some gel printing on it, but she thought I might enjoy testing it. I did. I videotaped my first drawing session using this paper. You can hear my opinions about the paper and learn other […]

Eyes—What I’m Looking at in June on Patreon

Whether you work in pencil, gouache, watercolor, pen, acrylic, eraser carving, silverpoint, color pencil…it doesn’t matter—rendering eyes is critical to the success of a portrait. The eyes show the character and soul of your subject. You want to get that down for your viewer. You want the gaze of your subject to draw the viewer […]

This May on Patreon: Choices for Working Loosely

  In May 2023 on Patreon I’m going to be demonstrating and discussing working loosely. What choices do you make? How do you go forward? How do you train your eye to be comfortable with looseness? You may have seen a speed video of this sketch on my Instagram account. On Patreon you can see […]

What’s on My Patreon Site for August 2022?

Last month on my Patreon/Roz-interim site I was writing and demonstrating working loosely. For me working loosely is a big topic. I’ve written about the need for each artist to define what “loosely” means to him or her. For me part of working loosely involves the tools you’re using. So this August I’ll be continuing to […]
