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 Happening on Patreon/RozInterim in September?

This month on my Patreon site I have a little fun with direct brush painting and some leftover paint. During the first demo of the month I do this portrait sketch and discuss looking for values and value shapes, brush and paint choices I make; and some fun with a gouache background. Additional demos are […]

On Patreon August 2023—Filberts

This month on Patreon-RozInterim I’ve been discussing and demonstrating the use of Filberts. Filberts are my favorite brush type for watercolor, gouache, or acrylic paint. I like them for a host of reasons but two stick out: They give me push back with the paint and I love that. They keep me from getting as […]

On Patreon/RozInterim in July 2023

This month on Patreon/RozInterim there’s a regular demo as well as a sped up series demo. In both I discuss aspects of the decision making process in sketching and watercolor. I look at the benefits of training your hand-eye-and mind to make quick decisions. I also discuss the grounding properties of a drawing practice. Creativity […]

This May on Patreon: Choices for Working Loosely

  In May 2023 on Patreon I’m going to be demonstrating and discussing working loosely. What choices do you make? How do you go forward? How do you train your eye to be comfortable with looseness? You may have seen a speed video of this sketch on my Instagram account. On Patreon you can see […]

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. […]

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 […]

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 […]

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 […]
