Another Look at the Sennelier Ink Brush Pen

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!

How I Use Gesso: Some Approaches and Thoughts

Recently a subscriber on my Patreon site asked me about a gesso comment I made during a webinar. It seemed easier to answer the question with a video response. And once the video was finished I realized a lot of readers here would probably like this information as well. It’s something I’ve discussed in past […]

In Context: Sketching to Work Something Out

The other day I sketched this white Chihuahua.  I went in too dar with the ink to start, and at one point before much was down, I made a small circle at the top right to start again, but then I thought, “Just look at the hair.” And I went back to the main sketch […]

Attitude

Attitude—is it a glance, a glare, the curl of a hair, the posture, the stance? The incorporated whole embodying presence.

Still That Secondary Triad

Sometimes I make myself laugh, catch myself by surprise. I look at this and see I kept working with that Secondary Colors triad. In this sketch from February there’s still the green, the orange, and the purple (which was a mix of quin pink and phthalo blue), with a little bit of that pink on […]

In Context: Ambivalent About Doodles

This page spread might address my thoughts on doodles? In light of things to come I thought it was prescient. Keeping a journal is like that. You know you’re thinking about things before you think about them. The drawing on the verso page is NOT a doodle, it’s a quick sketch with a fine brush […]

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 […]

A detail look at the portrait of Buster. Here you can see some of the broken-stroke dry brush which is top-layer paint over a dried underlayer.

Clearing Up Some Confusion About Gouache

After Monday’s post on the Stoneground Gouache Pans I want to clear up some confusion about gouache—a question I have received a lot over the years.   Question: I am writing to ask if you know of any gouache that doesn’t have acrylic paint in it? I’ve developed super sensitivities to chemical odors, can’t use […]
