The April Demo—Thinking About Pattern and Texture in the Design of a Painting

This month on Patreon I do a graphite and watercolor portrait. I use this portrait to begin a discussion on thinking about how the texture of brush strokes and the use of pattern and other textures in a painting impact the readability of that painting. The discussion will continued in May when I look at […]

Another Alun Armstrong Sketch

Here’s another brush pen and ink sketch of Alun Armstrong.   A wonderful set of dundrearies. Are they talked about as a set ? What is the related hairstyling vocabulary? Well, something to ponder, along with that wonderful hairdo. #MarchIsSketchAlunArmstrongMonth

Another Peek into “Bleak House”

In February I was sketching a lot of other folks besides Alun Armstrong. Here’s a sketch of Timothy West from “Bleak House.” I really can’t resist dundrearies!

Are You Sketching Alun Armstrong?

Feeling Around A Face

I did this sketch of Bill Bailey in a hand bound journal I’d made with 90 lb. watercolor paper (8 inches square).  I was watching one of the several British comedy shows he turns up on—which is the best way for a US-based viewer to catch him. (It was probably an episode of QI which […]

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 […]
