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 […]

In Context—It’s All Grist for the Mind Mill

Ever since childhood I’ve been the type of journal keeper who has visual elements in amongst written elements. It doesn’t matter if it’s something that I hear on the street, or in this case on the TV. It doesn’t matter if it is something that I’m reading. Everything is fair game, and I get down […]

Another Alun Armstrong Sketch

Here’s another brush pen and ink sketch of Alun Armstrong.   A wonderful set of dundrearies. Are they talked about as a set ? What is the related hairstyling vocabulary? Well, something to ponder, along with that wonderful hairdo. #MarchIsSketchAlunArmstrongMonth

Feeling Around A Face

I did this sketch of Bill Bailey in a hand bound journal I’d made with 90 lb. watercolor paper (8 inches square).  I was watching one of the several British comedy shows he turns up on—which is the best way for a US-based viewer to catch him. (It was probably an episode of QI which […]

In Context: Small Details Matter

In this brush pen and watercolor sketch in a Hahnemühle Travel Journal I’m working with wet media on a drawing paper and loving it. (I’ll have a counter opinion about using non-watercolor paper coming up another day on the blog.) You can click on the image and read the in-context text, me cooling my heals, […]

In Context—Brush Pen Portrait

I post this today as a reminder that when you’re going through rough times it’s important to keep using your creativity. Something imperfect is better than not having a go. Exercising your creativity generates new energy.

Sketching Stuart with Watercolor

After doing so many sketches of Stuart in pen, I decided to sketch him in watercolor. I was working in a Hahnemühle Drawing and Sketching Sketchbook. It contains a high quality drawing paper, but it’s not a wet media paper. I had to be careful not to use too much water, and not to work […]

Another Look At Stuart…

Here’s another quick sketch of the same muse from Sktchy. I love that mustache.  I was sitting in the car while Dick was in the pharmacy (all masked up). The visit went very quickly and I only had a few minutes. But it was enough time to look at the large shapes of value and […]

Drawing the Same Subject Over and Over

Just a series of quick posts today and next week—drawing the same subject over and over. Don’t think that each sketch has to be great. Just look closely when you’re drawing and get the visual information to go into your mind. Have fun looking. Savor it. Today is a brush pen sketch from 2018. It’s […]
