In Context: Beyond Likeness

I make a lot of notes about the blog posts I want to write. A couple days ago I drew this cat. One of my notes was sitting there on my desk.  Together they seem to say succinctly what I wanted to say about “why draw?” and the search for likeness in portraits. I’ll stop […]

Still That Secondary Triad

Sometimes I make myself laugh, catch myself by surprise. I look at this and see I kept working with that Secondary Colors triad. In this sketch from February there’s still the green, the orange, and the purple (which was a mix of quin pink and phthalo blue), with a little bit of that pink on […]

Another Sort of Selfie—The Doodle Selfie

  This is a late-night doodle, which is also a selfie… It’s on Fabriano Hot Press watercolor paper that I made into a hand-bound book. After midnight my spelling is questionable, though at least I still usually question it.

Roz’s 2018 Minnesota State Fair Journal

Today’s gallery contains all the pages of my 2018 Minnesota State Fair Journal. This year I was able to attend on three days. There are sections indicating the start of each new day, and stating which day was the sketch out (I could only attend one of the sketch out days). I worked on 300 […]
