Working in a Grid

Last fall I started doing a series of talks and posts for my Patreon subscribers about working with grids. There are tons of reasons you might want to do this but the main reason is to keep your momentum going when you find you don’t have a lot of time to make art.  Even if […]

Trying Out Dagger Brushes (Part Two of I haven’t a Clue How Many Posts)

Now and then I get a desire to test something new. Sometimes I hear about a new product, or a friend mentions something to me. Sometimes I go to the store and see something and wonder what it would be like to use that tool or medium. Other times, like recently, I unpack brushes that […]

Don’t Be Limited

    I couldn’t leave a week during which I discussed the use of space on a page, without including this portrait from the end of last year. I’m the queen of running off the page. Not planning sufficiently. This means in my haste I often miss the thing that engaged me most—the base of […]

End of Year Evaluations: Setting Goals and Projects

Something I talk to my students about a lot, whether it’s in a drawing class like “Drawing Practice” or now on my Patreon site is the importance of setting goals and projects that support those goals. It all begins with an honest evaluation of where your skills and your goals are right now. I was […]

Trying Out Some New Watercolor Brushes

What better time to test different types of watercolor brushes then when you are filling up the final pages of a journal made with great gelatin-sized paper!? That’s what I’m up to as the year moves to a close and I have 16 page spreads left in a hand-bound journal. Studio unpacking has progressed to […]

What’s Coming Up on RozInterim/Patreon?

It’s actually difficult to talk about what’s coming up on my Patreon site right now. Despite the iliac vein dissection and recovery I’ve been pushing my work, but in smaller chunks. So it’s easier to present it in a continuous stream or stretch instead of specific themes each month. In other words, themes are spilling […]

Some of the Topics You’ll find on RozInterim/Patreon

The side-bar banners listing what was going on each month on my Patreon/RozInterim site were taking over the side column of my blog, pushing other functions way out of reach. I decided to put the banners into a gallery that you can click through to understand the types of topics discussed on my Patreon/RozInterim subscription […]

Making Pamphlet Books

This weekend I posted my six-part video class on making pamphlet books. This was originally a free class I had available for several years on my Ruzuku teaching platform—when that was active. I’m going into the new year with some suggested projects for my Patreon subscribers and I realized while making examples to discuss and […]

Useful Painting Tools: The Mouth Atomizer

As painters we do love our gadgets. But I like to find workhorse gadgets that have many applications and help me create an unusual texture or approach, while also speeding things up. The mouth atomizer is good for all that. It’s the perfect tool for artists who don’t own, or don’t want to deal with, […]

What’s on Patreon October 2023?

This month I’m looking at simplification—of color choice, color washes and layering, and of course ink lines. Everything in drawing is basically about making choices and simplifying things, but it’s the really fun mental game of it, so I think it’s always good to talk about it, demystify it, and help you enjoy your drawing […]
