How To Use Space on Your Page Spread

This is a follow up of Wednesday’s post. Here’s an example of my experimenting with brush pen and ink wash on a page in a Japanese Lined journal.  I’d like to tell you this is cropped because there is text on the recto page that is private, but in reality it’s blank there, just more […]

Making Fun Lines

Just a quick little post. I was waiting for an appointment. It’s a waiting room where I’ve already drawn all the walls, halls, furniture, and decor! I looked up a bearded model on the iPhone Sktchy App and sat there in very low light, scribbling away. Even thought the pen was going dry, it feels […]

Dig Out Some Old Art Supplies

Even with the best laid plans sometimes things happen. I like to tape sketching sessions to use when explaining things to my Patreon subscribers. But last month while preparing pieces for this month’s playing with color theme I more than once forgot to turn the camera back on after taking a break to get something, […]

Seeing Color In Faces When Painting

In this sketch from August 2019 I played with large flat brush to lay in mostly transparent washes of watercolor.   I was watching TV late in the evening and the actor Anna Chancellor came on. I paused the TV because I wanted to work on the angles of the planes of her face and particularly […]

Make Some Marks, You Know You Want To…

Go on, make some marks. You know you want to, what’s stopping you? Even with uncorrected vision I have moments with my eyes. Moments which allow me, even if I can’t see accurately, to at least make a series of marks that describe a texture, follow a form, and create a pattern on the page […]

Always Be Playing: Try Different Approaches with the Nearly Same Media

It is important to experiment using different media together to come up with a look that suits the subject and mood of your sketch. If you don’t push yourself to try different media in different combinations you’ll never find what you like the look of; and what you most enjoy using. In this post I’ve […]

Aspirational Hashbrowns

I still haven’t had time to make this onion soup or these hashbrowns, but I dug up this page from my index. I do need to do both before it gets warm again!

Did You Follow My Advice Over The Weekend?

  Did you follow my advice over the weekend? Did you sketch and then savor the bits that worked out? I couldn’t resist following up my post with a sketch that didn’t work (the likeness is off and the facial features are too elongated), but I love it. I also don’t mind that it’s on […]

What’s Coming Up on Roz’s Subscription Blog in February?

  In December 2019 I started a subscription blog on Patreon: Roz Interim. You can use that link to read about the different subscription levels.  In February I’ll be sketching, painting, and talking about the portrait you see in this post. There will be a bonus portrait sketch painting because my subscribers in January asked […]

In Context—Painting on Drawing Paper

Two page spreads today from one of my Hahnemühle Travel Journals. (These are hardcover books that look like Moleskines, but these have more pages and a toothy drawing paper.) I used a Sakura Pigma Professional Brush Pen FB, watercolor, and a 1/2 inch flat brush.  Take a moment to look at all the pieces in […]
