A Colorful Portrait: I Love Lavender!

Here’s a portrait from 2021 that I haven’t posted. I can’t remember what the blog topic I wanted to address with it was. I look at it now and totally fall in love with the hair and the beard again. I love how it seems to be moving up and around of its own accord. […]

My Favorites Are Not Your Favorites; It’s a Good Thing

It always momentarily amazes me which paintings I post on Instagram get the most likes. Paintings I absolutely love usually gain low scores. Dogs and chickens are popular. I understand that. I offer this comment here for past students who may wonder why people are not falling in love with the painting they just posted […]

What’s on Patreon/RozInterim in October 2022?

  You’ve seen this sketch in full before—I have used it as one of my Wizards. But I saved the video to discuss on my Patreon blog for October 2022. You’ve read here on RozWoundUp what I think about working with intention; how I love to experiment; how I think it’s crucial to play and […]

On Patreon/RozInterim in September 2022—Brush Pen

The discussion on Patreon, and my demos, for the past couple of months, has been about defining what is a loose drawing to you, and how to work loosely to achieve that vision. I guess there’s always more to discuss about working loosely when you love working with brush pen. So this month on Patreon […]

What’s on My Patreon Site for August 2022?

Last month on my Patreon/Roz-interim site I was writing and demonstrating working loosely. For me working loosely is a big topic. I’ve written about the need for each artist to define what “loosely” means to him or her. For me part of working loosely involves the tools you’re using. So this August I’ll be continuing to […]

Yep, The Posts Are Shorter…for Now

A kind reader wrote to me last week and said, “Do you know your full blog posts aren’t being posted? I get your email notice of a new post, click on the post, and when I get to the blog there is no additional text.” Of course I went right away to check things out. […]

Sketching Loosely in July

This July on Patreon I’ll be discussing working loosely, whether sketching or painting. First of course we will actually define our terms—what is loose? (Hint: it will be different for everyone, but we can still have approaches…) If you would like to join in  and catch the videos please subscribe to Patreon/RozInterim here.  Whatever you […]

Fudenosuke Pen and Toned Paper

  I don’t know if I can ever fully explain why I like working on toned paper. Maybe it is just easy on the eyes. I know one year at the Minnesota State Fair I showed up with bright white paper (unusually white paper, not like anything I normally use) and my eyes were giving […]

Making Neutrals with a Secondary Triad

  Update: May 14, 2022. The paper used for this portrait was from a pad purchased in 2000-02. Magnani Portofino paper has been “revamped.” The current version of this paper is NOT one I would recommend for wet media work. You can see a post reviewing the currently available paper on this blog on May […]

A Different Sort of Wizard—Special Circumstances

  Today seemed a good day to share another one of my wizard paintings because, well next month (April) on my Patreon blog I’m going to be sharing the full, realtime version of this sketch as a secondary demo. (You can already see the sketch silent and sped up to only 3 minutes long on […]
