Easy Art Supply Shopping for Roz’s SketchKon Workshop

Wet Paint is my favorite locally owned independent art supply store. They have always been helpful by bringing in items that I need for my binding and art classes. They also put kits together for my local and online classes. While there is no kit or set supplies for my SketchKon 2018 Class “Donuts” there […]

My friend Terri Wentzka took this photo of me as I sketched a turkey at the Fair, using my portable "table." The entire table is attached to a monopod. The brush holder is in the top right corner of the table.

Making a Simple Brush Holder for Your Travel Brushes

This year at the Fair I wanted to use real brushes with water, not water brushes, when painting.  Since I stand when I sketch it meant I had to have a way to put all my supplies and journal on one work surface. Dick and I made up a prototype “travel table” using plastic corrugated […]

This is the first sketch on the gray paper I did this day. I started with red pencil, but abandoned it because I didn't like the red on the paper. I went instead to the Pentel Brush pen.

Summer Chicken Sketch Out with Metro Sketchers

Earlier this summer a local Minneapolis couple who keep chickens invited Metro Sketchers over to their home—they have 6 chickens! Sketchers filled the yard on fold out and lawn chairs while the chickens weaved in and about nibbling on cracked corn sprinkled on the grass. One chicken decided that my wash water (which didn’t have […]

My Goals for 2017 and The MCBA Visual Journal Collective’s Ninth Annual Portrait Party

This post was originally published on January 15, 2017 during my site transition. Note: The images in today’s post were sketched while I was sick with bronchitis and watching an episode of “Forged in Fire.” I LOVE THIS SHOW. Four blacksmiths compete in three rounds for $10,000. First they make a blade in 3 hours, then finish […]

Saying Good-bye To The Bell Museum

Above: Pen and watercolor sketch at the Bell Museum on 9 x 12 inch white Stonehenge paper. And yes Stonehenge is not a watercolor paper, but sometimes you just want to paint on what you want to paint on. Sunday was the Urban Sketchers Twin Cities sketch out at the Bell Museum. I added the […]

Minnesota State Fair Journal Update

Left: This year at the Fair, at least on a few days, there were some birds. A big change from last year when bird flu hit and birds were banned from the Fair. The sad news is that the pigeon fancy took a huge hit. We were down from hundreds of entries to less than […]

Sketching at the Bell Museum: Projects, Process, Portraits

Today is Remembrance Day. Typically I write a post about Remembrance Day. For some reason, prepping to write this post during a very contentious election I found that it was almost too emotional to write about this topic. You can read a past post here with a movie recommendation that will focus your thoughts. You […]

Sketching with Twin Cities Urban Sketchers in October 2016

Above: Working in my 8 x 8 inch Seawhite of Brighton Sketchbook I sketched the top of one of the old Brewery buildings in Indanthrone blue watercolor pencil (Faber-Castell) which I left dry. I blocked out the sky with a light blue 15 mm Montana Marker. Last Saturday Twin Cities Urban Sketchers met at the […]
