  Note: Enjoy this long post and the attached gallery. Family and business obligations will keep me away from this blog for most of November. I may pop in with a quick post or two, but the first two weeks of November are particularly tight. I wanted to give you something to look at in […]

Hairdos on Television

Don’t get me started. Hairdos on television. So many, so little time. Here’s a sketch of one of my favorite young actors, Marcus Scribner, who plays “Junior” on “Black-ish.” Through the seasons he’s had different hairstyles. His headgear obscures much of the hairdo here, but I was struck by the small dreads just appearing over […]

In Context—Hair Volume and a Note

Volume in hair is always such a glorious surprise. It can float right off the page. (This is a page spread from December 2018. I’m not sure why I didn’t have a date and time on this sketch—I usually write that information automatically on each sketch or page when completed. This book has been archived, […]

Wrapping Up Teaching…What Does That Mean?

Papers Influence Your Ink Wash

I wish EVERYONE paid more attention to this. You might say, “Roz, I don’t have a paper budget, I’ve got a grocery budget right now and I use what I use  for paper.” Yep, I get that. I don’t have a paper budget right now either. I do have some paper purchased for projects that […]

How To Use Space on Your Page Spread

This is a follow up of Wednesday’s post. Here’s an example of my experimenting with brush pen and ink wash on a page in a Japanese Lined journal.  I’d like to tell you this is cropped because there is text on the recto page that is private, but in reality it’s blank there, just more […]

Working with Ink Washes on Toned Paper

Over the last couple weeks the students in my on line class drawing practice class have been working with values—learning to see value shapes, to judge and compare one value to another.  Understanding values, the relative lightness and darkness from one area of a subject to another, and the ability to translate those values to […]

Finding An Art Buddy Might Be Detrimental to Your Drawing Practice

      Yes, I said it. I called out one of the elephants in the room. Finding a sketching/art buddy to go sketching with might just turn out to be detrimental to your drawing practice. This is difficult for people to digest, especially during the pandemic when most are craving more contact with people. […]

In Context: Life Before Covid-19

A week ago, a couple weeks ago(?) Covid-19 took out the grand finale of Ink Master 2020.  In the grand scheme of things, and with so many lives lost, it’s a small thing. But still a disappointment for the three finalists who won’t get to battle it out and find out who is “Ink Master.” […]
