Being Fussy Doesn’t Really Bother Me All That Much

I think if I sketched on an iPad doing white hairlines would be pretty easy, but then I wouldn’t have the fun of messing with white gouache, or gel pens, or any of the things I end up using while working on paper. I got very fussy at the end of this sketch, but I’m […]

Tips on Drawing with a Dried Out Brush Pen (or Marker for that Matter)

At the left is the sketch I’ll be demonstrating in my video below. A persistent cough for the past 3 months has kept me from being chatty on my sketching videos. Most of these sketch videos end up as pieces for my Patreon demonstration site. But if I’m working silently to avoid coughing when I […]

I Forgot to Tell You About September on Patreon

I just realized, in putting up the new blog side bar image for OCTOBER that I forgot to put up the one for September. I’m sorry because it was a great month—8 videos (the last one goes up on Monday). I focused on preparing for a project and working in ink (dip pen, brush pen, […]

Demonstration Review of the Pilot Shunpitsu Pocket Brush Pen

Sometimes when I’m under the weather the best thing I can do is test new tools and materials. I find that it takes my focus aways from any aches, pains, or in the current case coughs and general systems failures. (I don’t have Covid, I just have a bad case of bronchitis which even with […]

Coming Up in July on Patreon

During July I’ll continue my discussion of dog portraits. Subscribers can watch me sketch this ink portrait. I’ll also look at minimal line and wash approaches to sketching a white dog. I hope you’ll come and join the conversation.

Testing Langton-Prestige Watercolor Paper

  I have just started testing Daler-Rowney’s Langton-Prestige Cold Press Watercolor paper. In the above video you can see my first experiments with it and my first thoughts. If the video doesn’t play you can view it on Vimeo at this link. Normally in my demonstration videos I include any photo reference or still life […]

Giving Yourself Feedback

Recently on the blog I wrote about how it’s important to ask yourself questions in your journal. It’s also important to give yourself feedback in your journal. I find it useful when I’m making portrait studies to write short notes to myself about the angles that need correction, proportions, colors used and so on. I […]

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 […]

February 2021’s Painting Demo On Patreon

Patreon-RozInterim is my subscription blog where I do drawing and painting demos. For February 2021 I did this portrait shown in this post. I’m excited about it because I love painting with glazes of color, and this sketch gave me the opportunity to demonstrate this to subscribers. Another thing I enjoy about having the Patreon […]

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 […]
