More Great TV News: New Episodes of “Mock the Week”

If you’ve been playing the home game of “How Many UK Television Shows Does Roz Watch Anyway?” you’ll be pleased to know that one of my favorite shows has new episodes out in the US. (BritBox) “Mock the Week” is back in a covid manifestation with perspex partitions between the comics and a Zoom audience. […]

A Little Bit of Collage Can Be Your Friend

You know how I like to paint on drawing paper? Sometimes the paper complains. That happened when I put in the Montana Marker background on this page spread. The marker ink/paint saturated and roughed up the paper at the top of the page. I didn’t want the paper to be weak there because it would […]

There’s Something Marvelous About Brush Pen on Bright White Paper

  When you need a break I think you can always squeeze in one or two quick brush pen sketches. I think the crispness of a brush pen line, even when it drags to dry-brush lines, is cheering against the white of the paper. The lines say, “This is the boundary, this is the texture.” […]

More on Hair—Some Beards

Beards, I tend to draw them all the time. Towards the end of my live stream while drawing a portrait of Rick in a top hat I mention why beards are so essential a feature to draw. Some crisp white watercolor paper, a pen, some paint, a little bit of winding down at the end […]

Since I Was on the Topic of Hair…

Hair, it’s one of the things that pulls me to draw a portrait. How does that person have his or her hair? I am particularly susceptible to Jane Austen dramatizations—so much wonderful 18th century or 19th century hair depending on how the film decides to go with fashion at the cusp of time. Or anything […]

Direct Brush—On Inexpensive Paper

Here’s a direct brush sketch I made on Fabriano Mixed Media paper. It’s an inexpensive paper. I’ve written about it before on the blog. I wasn’t expecting much when I started this experiment. I thought the paper would give out. It didn’t. My patience for rendering the fluffy curls gave out. I was working with […]

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
