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 […]

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 […]

Two More Liner Brush Tests

I’ve got two sketch-tests for two different liner/rigger brushes. Both were executed in a pre-Covid Handbook that’s about 5.5 x 8 inches, with 140 lb. cold press watercolor paper.

Direct Brush Painting with a Liner Brush

I admit it. I love experimenting. I had a new paint from Schmincke—Ocean Grey. I had a wonderful face reference from Sktchy. And I had a LINER BRUSH! Note: There are liner brushes and rigger brushes. They are and aren’t interchangeable. Both are long-tipped. If you want a long brush to apply paint it might […]

Brushes: Some Brushes That I Use

In August 2010 I published the first two posts specifically about brushes. (I’ve discussed brushes in other posts but not as the main topic.) I thought it would be easier, as time passes, for people to locate these posts if I created a page which listed the links, providing another way besides the search engine, […]
