In Context—Books I’ve Been Reading

I’ve been downsizing my library, so I have been spending my free-time in the past year rereading books before I give them away. Here’s a character’s take on crime-novel reading. I have my own theories on the popularity of mysteries and crime fiction. And of course on my own readership of those genres. But hey, […]

In Context—Another Peek at Pandemic Life

Pandemic life can’t help but pop up in your journal if you’re working from home. I’ve been sorting my images, all in little folders ready for blog posts. I have had some, like this one from 2020 set to go—but I don’t remember what the topic was to be.  Last week (2021) I  cooked a […]

What’s Going on at RozWoundUp?

  I have been dealing with a frustrating tech issue for the past three weeks. Posts here on RozWoundUp are going to be short “image and very little text” with intermittent posting, until I get this resolved. My Patreon site will go on pretty much as normal. The equipment I ordered to resolve this issue […]

In Context: Wake Up and Sketch

  I couldn’t resist the title to today’s post—I think everyone needs to sketch of course. But also, if you end up waking up because of outside street noise, don’t stress, just sketch.

Painting on Drawing Paper

In this brush pen and watercolor sketch I painted on the drawing paper contained in a Hahnemühle Drawing and Sketching book. (It’s about 8.5 x 9 inches or so). As I mentioned in a recent post, I enjoy sketching on drawing papers, well certain drawing papers.  Why?  Because I enjoy the drag of the pen […]

In Context: Small Details Matter

In this brush pen and watercolor sketch in a Hahnemühle Travel Journal I’m working with wet media on a drawing paper and loving it. (I’ll have a counter opinion about using non-watercolor paper coming up another day on the blog.) You can click on the image and read the in-context text, me cooling my heals, […]

More Sketches of James Corden

So last year as you saw I started sketching James Corden while viewing “Gavin & Stacey.” (See yesterday’s post.) I decided, since I was having fun sketching him at lunch I’d stay up and watch his late night show. And of course sketch him. It’s always fun to work on Nostalgie. The smooth surface of […]

A Project on Projects: Do It Anyway December

  A couple weeks ago I asked the Tier 3 subscribers on my Patreon Blog what they wanted to talk about in the upcoming webinar. Their responses surprised me: project generation and color theory. OK the color theory questions weren’t surprising, but the project questions were. I sat down and started thinking what to do, […]

I Start a New Sketchbook

  If the above video doesn’t run you can view it here. I’m not connected to Hahnemühle in a paid capacity, but I sure do enjoy working in their Travel Journal. On the 27th of September I started a new sketchbook that is a favorite type and size to me. In this very short video […]

Suggesting Hair Mass with Line

You don’t always have to use ink or paint wash to show volume in hair. I love working in the Hahnemühle Travel Journal. (See also the Hahnemühle Travel Book category.) It contains paper suitable for drawing and for pen and ink. I’ve used it for that in this sketch. Sometimes I also do washes on […]
