Roz’s 2018 International Fake Journal Wrap Up

How can I post a wrap up today when IFJM is still not over? This year because of a pending surgery (happily not needed after all) and other factors you can read about in my wrap up I did my fake journal in March 2018. You can access the wrap up and gallery of my […]

Here is a detail of the sketch showing a bit of lifting around the nose.

A Couple More Thoughts on Green and Flat Brushes

I wanted to show another green-based watercolor I worked on last year while I was testing the Hahnemühle Watercolor Sketchbook. (A review with lots of details about that paper and the binding of that sketchbook will appear in a couple weeks.)  Today’s image was created mostly with watercolor flats. I went in with round brushes […]

A Look at My Sketching Set Up for International Fake Journal Month

Wrapping Up My 2017 International Fake Journal

Today I’ve got a gallery of images created in April for 2017 International Fake Journal Month. (Don’t know what IFJM is? Or what fake journal is? Click on the link.) This year’s journal was a loose sheet journal. All the sketch pages were 6-3/16 x 9.25 inches. In keeping with my goal of using what I […]

I Didn’t Know It But I Was Starting A New Series

Often the idea for a new series comes to us by accident. We’re working (that’s when the muse can best find us) and things we’re working with combine in new ways, jog a memory, present a challenge, and bingo a new series pops into our minds. That’s what happened at the end of March this […]

Going Through Withdrawal from International Fake Journal Month

Left: Small Pentel Pocket Brush Pen and Schmincke Gouache painting on Arches Cold Press Watercolor board. (4-3/16 x 6-5/8 inches for live area.)

I Married a Cartoon Character

Left: Pentel Brush Pen sketch with Daniel Smith watercolors on Arches Cold Press Watercolor board (16 x 10 inches). Painted with a 2 inch wide brush. I got so carried away working on Arches cold press watercolor board every day in April for my 2016 Fake Journal that I worked on it for real as […]

April Is Almost Here…

Above: I'm not the only one attracted to the odor of the sizing in Arches watercolor paper. Des had to come over and check out the stack of cut watercolor boards Monday afternoon. He is very curious. I didn't have the heart to tell him they were for a project he's not involved in. Background It’s […]
