Paper Nostalgia

Paper nostalgia is that pull and desire to work on a particular type of paper that you haven’t worked on in some time. I was trying to organize some of my images in my database and came across this one from almost a year ago. I felt an immediate wave of paper nostalgia. My first thought […]

Color Pencil Loves Watercolor

  Color pencil loves watercolor (and gouache) because they dry to a surface that still allows the application of color pencil. And when you use the color pencil with light pressure on top of dry watercolor passages on a slightly textured paper you get a lovely broken color effect. (You can see that in the […]

Missing the Fair

I’m still feeling waves of Fair deprivation.  Happily while I can’t go to a fair yet, Earth of Earth’s World has been going to fairs. I asked, and Earth is happy for artists to sketch from the photos up on the website if you give attribution. #Earthsworld if you’re on Instagram. Here’s a sketch I […]

Another Dog Portrait…

As we leave July and my Patreon discussions about dog portraits I simply wanted to make a case, through one more portrait, about contrast. It’s vital, it draws the eye, it’s fun to build up.  Here’s a sketch from 2018. I liked the textures (and suggested textures) so much that all I wanted was a […]

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 […]

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 […]

More on Default Scale and Tools

This is part 3 of my farewell to teaching series. If you haven’t watched the video I posted on Wednesday then this post isn’t going to mean anything to you. This post is about showing additional examples and discussing the same idea, without going back into all the basics.   Simply put, in today’s post you […]

In Context: Playing with Faces while Making Soup

My pen was running out of ink and then I had some left over paint—it’s fun what you get up to when you are using little bits of time between doing another task. (The soup was great! Though I only stayed up to put it away for the next day.) This is from an 8.5 […]
