Registration Is Open For The Final Session Of “Textures: Backgrounds For Visual Journaling And Mixed Media”

Yesterday registration opened for my final online session of “Textures: Backgrounds for Visual Journaling and Mixed Media.” If you’re new to my blog you might not know it but I enjoy pre-painting journal pages with a variety of media. I work ahead in my journals this way. Then when I turn to a pre-painted page […]

Finding An Art Buddy Might Be Detrimental to Your Drawing Practice

      Yes, I said it. I called out one of the elephants in the room. Finding a sketching/art buddy to go sketching with might just turn out to be detrimental to your drawing practice. This is difficult for people to digest, especially during the pandemic when most are craving more contact with people. […]

Cupcakes—Thoughts and an Upcoming Demo

There’s a bakery in the same building as my eye doctor’s downtown office. I made a lot of trips to his office last year. Dick drove me. Then on the walk down from the eye doctor’s office to the parking ramp I often suggested a stop at the bakery to buy some “life-drawing” models. Don’t […]

Minnesota State Fair Plans

I don’t know if the Minnesota State Fair 2020 has been cancelled. (It takes place the 12 days before Labor Day each year.) As I write this in advance of my posting date the clock on their site reads 101 days, 11 hours, and 11 minutes to Fair. But my personal Fair adventure this year […]

Seeing Color In Faces When Painting

In this sketch from August 2019 I played with large flat brush to lay in mostly transparent washes of watercolor.   I was watching TV late in the evening and the actor Anna Chancellor came on. I paused the TV because I wanted to work on the angles of the planes of her face and particularly […]

Want To See How Roz Sketches and Paints?

Last December I started a Patreon-Roz Interim subscription blog where I place real time videos of my sketching demonstrations.  This is the sketch that I showed in March of this year. It uses pen and watercolor in an Arteza Watercolor Book. (I’ve reviewed these journals elsewhere on this blog, please use the category list to […]

Portrait Practice: Going from the General to the Specific

Just a practice spread from April 2019. I was almost 2 months out from my second cataract surgery, but still working with uncorrected eyes. It was as if I needed a recalibration every time I sat down to sketch. But it was also about remembering to breathe and to not focus on the realities of […]

Review: New Toned Watercolor Paper Sketchbooks From Hahnemühle

Spoiler Alert, I really enjoyed working on this paper. If that’s all you need to know I understand that Wet Paint has received a shipment. Contact them to purchase a book. (I’m going to go buy my copies at curbside tomorrow! Call them at 651-698-6431 and they’ll explain all that to you.) In the video […]

Accepting Changes in Your Process

I’ve written quite a bit about accepting changes in your process throughout the 11 years of this blog. It is a common theme in my teaching.  One of the things that seems to hang students up the most is the notion that there must be one “right” way to do something. I’m constantly telling crop […]

In this detail you can see me smearing paint around with a Niji Waterbrush (too engrossed in what I'm doing to get up and refill it so I have more water—but also simply enjoying the thick paint on the slip paper made for fountain pens.)

Things To Do in the Current Pandemic: Testing Non-Art Papers for Mixed Media Visual Journaling

Last week I wrote the following blog post to my Patreon-RozInterim subscribers. When I started my subscription blog on Patreon I had no intentions to share any of the posts from that blog with a larger audience. However the current pandemic has me bending the rules on this particular post. This post deals with testing […]
