Getting Some Sketching Practice In

The other day I was writing about a friend alerting me to the fact that Amazon Prime is now carrying some of the seasons of “Portrait Artist of the Year.” I have loved this show from the moment I heard about it from one of my English friends. Here are a couple sketches I made […]

Television Mysteries

Things have come up and interrupted my writing of blog posts. I’ve got little folders with the dates and topics and the drawings all set up and yet I keep getting “called” away. I decided rather than try to make the reasoned, composed, and collected blog post about all the mysteries on television I’ve been […]

Evidently I Can Nap and Sketch at the Same Time

More Victorian dramas…I just love the hair. (Dried out brush pen in the Hahnemühle Travel Book.) I still laugh every time I see this sketch. (I was sorting digital images the other day and found it.) See that circle in his cheek on the left? I actually fell asleep sketching that. (And really overworked it […]

Stubble—I Can’t Help Myself

I just have to maintain a daily diet of sketching stubble. It can be with the Tombow Fudenosuke pen like this sketch, or the Pentel Pocket Brush Pen or the Squeezy brush pens from Pentel, or ANY PEN. I just think stubble is fun to sketch. I suspect it is the 15 years I spent […]

Some Thoughts About Betty White

Actress and comedian Betty White died on December 31, 2021, just short of her 100th birthday. Dick botched the notification system we have in place yet again. We are having a serious re-think about the current system. I had to point out that “we are not OK.”  When your life spans the 1960s to the […]

FAQ—So What Pigments Do You Actually Use Roz?

“So what pigments do you actually use Roz?”—it’s something I’m asked all the time. I was asked again this Sunday during my Patreon Webinar. I had two travel palettes out on my desk, one with 26 pans, one with 27 pans. I was bemoaning the loss, through miss-packing of a storage box, of a third […]

Finding Clues in Your Journal…

Journals can tell us all sorts of things. They can tell us how whiny we are; how quick to forgive; how obsessed we are with one thing and not another; how focused and dedicated we are to our interests; and of course clues about our health. I was catching up on scanning the other day. […]

Less Is Often More

So the other day I was writing about being fussy. Sometimes I’m the exact opposite and do as little as possible. Today’s image is an example of that. There can be something very satisfying in not delving into layers of details, and in coming up with pigment choices that leave much of the surface unpainted. […]
