Working with Analogous Colors

Late at night, relaxing and watching British comedy shows I simply have to sketch. This sketch from December 2019 is an analogous color sketch of Johnny Vegas when guesting on “QI.” Everyone needs to watch “QI.” It’s vastly fun, entertaining, and sometimes you even learn something. (Stephen Fry hosted for a number of seasons and […]

Things Our Journals Tell Us

If you look at my journal from January and February 2020 you learn a lot about me.  You learn that I like to use my lunch break to watch a little bit of TV and sketch. You’ll learn that I became fascinated with the young James Corden in “Gaven & Stacey.” You’ll also learn that […]

A Year Ago Today…Always Learning

Even though I haven’t been posting much lately here on RozWoundUp I have been busy posting on my Patreon site, and continuing my culling of books from my library, completing and lining up work projects, and of course cooking, cooking, cooking. I’ll have more to say about the cooking on another day, but today I […]

Drawing the Same Subject Over and Over

Just a series of quick posts today and next week—drawing the same subject over and over. Don’t think that each sketch has to be great. Just look closely when you’re drawing and get the visual information to go into your mind. Have fun looking. Savor it. Today is a brush pen sketch from 2018. It’s […]

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 […]

More Fun With Hair (and a Beard)

The brilliant audacity of this hair takes my breath away. It makes me smile.

Salt and Pepper Hair

More volume, varied textures. Check, check. But here we’ve got salt and pepper hair. Lots of white hairs, lots of streaks of black hair, some hair that seems in-between because it is, or because it is in shadow. How many different ways can you think to approach that? On this day I decided to let […]

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 This book has been archived, […]

The Simple Volume of Hair

Sometimes the best way to capture hair is to look at the volume and capture the large value shapes. It can be more striking than fussing would be. It can make real the cast shadows because of its suggested substance. (Have you guessed yet? October is about hair. I get asked about hair all the […]

The Importance of Space

Is the hair in this sketch exaggerated?  It’s hard to say. This woman (a contestant on “Project Runway”) had mounds and mounds of curly hair. So much hair, in fact, often not tied back, that I wondered how she got any work done without it always getting in the way. But remember that thought comes […]
