The Case for Not Finishing a Sketch

I’m the first person to encourage people to finish what they start. In fact I encourage people to push past the point where they think they have finished, because until you “break” a few sketches you don’t really know where that point of finish resides. But I also wanted to put a word in today […]

In Context: The Beginning of One of Those Emotional Entanglements…

Another Delano Ames quotation. (Hahnemühle Travel Journal.) “He gulped sentimentally.” Ah to have written that, what a perceptive way to see a dog.

Coming Up in July on Patreon

During July I’ll continue my discussion of dog portraits. Subscribers can watch me sketch this ink portrait. I’ll also look at minimal line and wash approaches to sketching a white dog. I hope you’ll come and join the conversation.

This Month on RozInterim on Patreon It’s Studies, Including Cats…

  But in June I’m going to paint some dogs. Of course. I just wanted to give you a heads up about what’s happening on my Patreon site in May 2021. There I’ve already got a video up discussing making a study portrait. I’ll be discussing this topic throughout the month. Tiers 2 and 3 […]

Almost Speechless

It has been an intense and difficult two months in the US since the murder of George Floyd by the Minneapolis police. Last week I saw something I never thought I’d see. (As a child I was out of the country in 1968.)  Masked Federal agents putting people, who were exercising their right to protest, […]

A Short Video about My Favorite Brush Pens

I love using the Pentel brush pens with the squeezy bodies, and of course the Pentel Pocket Brush pen. You can read more about them and see them in some different packaging in this linked blog post. Today I’m posting short video I made for my Patreon—RozInterim subscribers. (The video appears at the base of […]

Things to Do in the Current Pandemic: Learn from Pluto

Learn from Pluto? Yep, the dog, not the planet or the cartoon dog.  Pluto Living is a YouTube channel that has PSAs (Pluto Service Announcements) from Pluto the dog. This dog is an older miniature Schnauzer (if I’m remembering correctly). Her name is Pluto and she is concerned about the issues stressing two-leggeds in the […]

In this detail you can see me smearing paint around with a Niji Waterbrush (too engrossed in what I'm doing to get up and refill it so I have more water—but also simply enjoying the thick paint on the slip paper made for fountain pens.)

Things To Do in the Current Pandemic: Testing Non-Art Papers for Mixed Media Visual Journaling

Last week I wrote the following blog post to my Patreon-RozInterim subscribers. When I started my subscription blog on Patreon I had no intentions to share any of the posts from that blog with a larger audience. However the current pandemic has me bending the rules on this particular post. This post deals with testing […]

Coincidence or not? Seeing Double…

Lately I’ve found that because I always see double I have been spending a lot of time thinking about “the single line” and what is the minimal amount that you can do with line. Dogs are a useful subject to practice these theories on.  Paper matters so much in this exploration. In the second image […]
