In Context: The Beginning of One of Those Emotional Entanglements…

Another Delano Ames quotation. (Hahnemühle Travel Journal.) “He gulped sentimentally.” Ah to have written that, what a perceptive way to see a dog.

Get Serious about Pen Health

OK you’ve read over and over on the blog that I love drawing with pens that are drying out. BUT… Someone has to get serious and march around the house and throw out all the really dried out pens. It’s time to start fresh. On the evening of this drawing if a fresh pen had […]

In Context—Another Peek at Pandemic Life

Pandemic life can’t help but pop up in your journal if you’re working from home. I’ve been sorting my images, all in little folders ready for blog posts. I have had some, like this one from 2020 set to go—but I don’t remember what the topic was to be.  Last week (2021) I  cooked a […]

What’s Going on at RozWoundUp?

  I have been dealing with a frustrating tech issue for the past three weeks. Posts here on RozWoundUp are going to be short “image and very little text” with intermittent posting, until I get this resolved. My Patreon site will go on pretty much as normal. The equipment I ordered to resolve this issue […]

Papers Influence Your Ink Wash

I wish EVERYONE paid more attention to this. You might say, “Roz, I don’t have a paper budget, I’ve got a grocery budget right now and I use what I use  for paper.” Yep, I get that. I don’t have a paper budget right now either. I do have some paper purchased for projects that […]

A full spread sketch in the largest Hahnemühle Nostalgie sketchbook. I used a Bienfang Magenta watercolor brush pend to start and did the comb and wattles and area around the eye. A little different approach for me because I usually start with the eye. Then I decided to paint some of the features, add color to the background, and also add some stenciling detail to the background.

Protected: When Do You Stop? When Is A Drawing Finished

There is no excerpt because this is a protected post.

I believe in the value of making a mess. I believe that sometimes you just need to make marks on a page, just to get things down on a page and to keep the flow going.

Sketching on Nostalgie with Water-soluble Ink.

If you read my blog regularly you already know I love the Hahnemühle Nostalgie Sketchbooks. I love sketching on this paper with any type of ink, but I wanted to look today at some of the fun I’ve been having with water-soluble ink. In the main image you can see that it was time to sketch […]

It’s That Time of Year Again—Puffy Coats

Left: A Sakura Pigma Profesional FB (Fine Brush) Pen sketch in a small (A6) landscape Hahnemühle Nostalgie Sketchbook which I’ve turned so that the gutter is horizontal and I have a LONG vertical to sketch in. It happens every year—the temperatures drop (I do live in Minnesota after all) and I find myself in waiting rooms […]

Gouache In the Hahnemühle Nostalgie

Above: In the 8.27 x 11.69 inch (A4) size Hahnemühle Nostalie Journal I sketched this finch from pet store photos. I used a Faber-Castell Pitt Calligraphy pen and then painted with gouache. I played with different layers and reworked areas, specifically in the background because I wanted to push the paper—it was so fun to put paint […]
