Working in a Grid

Last fall I started doing a series of talks and posts for my Patreon subscribers about working with grids. There are tons of reasons you might want to do this but the main reason is to keep your momentum going when you find you don’t have a lot of time to make art.  Even if […]

End of Year Evaluations: Setting Goals and Projects

Something I talk to my students about a lot, whether it’s in a drawing class like “Drawing Practice” or now on my Patreon site is the importance of setting goals and projects that support those goals. It all begins with an honest evaluation of where your skills and your goals are right now. I was […]

What’s Coming Up on RozInterim/Patreon?

It’s actually difficult to talk about what’s coming up on my Patreon site right now. Despite the iliac vein dissection and recovery I’ve been pushing my work, but in smaller chunks. So it’s easier to present it in a continuous stream or stretch instead of specific themes each month. In other words, themes are spilling […]

Some of the Topics You’ll find on RozInterim/Patreon

The side-bar banners listing what was going on each month on my Patreon/RozInterim site were taking over the side column of my blog, pushing other functions way out of reach. I decided to put the banners into a gallery that you can click through to understand the types of topics discussed on my Patreon/RozInterim subscription […]

What’s on Patreon October 2023?

This month I’m looking at simplification—of color choice, color washes and layering, and of course ink lines. Everything in drawing is basically about making choices and simplifying things, but it’s the really fun mental game of it, so I think it’s always good to talk about it, demystify it, and help you enjoy your drawing […]

What’s Happening on Patreon/RozInterim in September?

This month on my Patreon site I have a little fun with direct brush painting and some leftover paint. During the first demo of the month I do this portrait sketch and discuss looking for values and value shapes, brush and paint choices I make; and some fun with a gouache background. Additional demos are […]

On Patreon August 2023—Filberts

This month on Patreon-RozInterim I’ve been discussing and demonstrating the use of Filberts. Filberts are my favorite brush type for watercolor, gouache, or acrylic paint. I like them for a host of reasons but two stick out: They give me push back with the paint and I love that. They keep me from getting as […]

On Patreon/RozInterim in July 2023

This month on Patreon/RozInterim there’s a regular demo as well as a sped up series demo. In both I discuss aspects of the decision making process in sketching and watercolor. I look at the benefits of training your hand-eye-and mind to make quick decisions. I also discuss the grounding properties of a drawing practice. Creativity […]

Eyes—What I’m Looking at in June on Patreon

Whether you work in pencil, gouache, watercolor, pen, acrylic, eraser carving, silverpoint, color pencil…it doesn’t matter—rendering eyes is critical to the success of a portrait. The eyes show the character and soul of your subject. You want to get that down for your viewer. You want the gaze of your subject to draw the viewer […]

This May on Patreon: Choices for Working Loosely

  In May 2023 on Patreon I’m going to be demonstrating and discussing working loosely. What choices do you make? How do you go forward? How do you train your eye to be comfortable with looseness? You may have seen a speed video of this sketch on my Instagram account. On Patreon you can see […]
