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 […]

Snow Piles, We’ve Seen the Last of Them, for Now

Sometimes projects sneak up on us. Sometimes projects are simply the manifestation of a habit. Sometimes it’s fun to catch up on scanning your journal pages and seeing the massive amounts of snow you’ve just dealt with. (Actually I wasn’t doing much dealing with it—Dick was the one creating 7-foot tall snow piles on either […]

More Journaling Fun

Sometimes you read a bit of text in a magazine and it just happens that it goes with a sketch. I love it when that happens. What discoveries are you making today about your mind, your interests, your use of color, your language, your process…? The journal is a wonderful place to learn more about […]

In Context: Thoughts about Memory

Everything has been churned up in my life for the past several years. Covid slowed, to almost a halt, a downsizing that I’m just beginning to see the possible end to. But the last five years have had me also thinking a lot about memory. Then I find myself watching TV and another step of […]

Compositional Choices in a Journal

I was writing last month about choices on my Patreon blog and my mind keeps coming up with examples even though we’ve moved on. This one is about compositional choice. And we never really move away from compositional choices… First, nope, I didn’t suddenly get tired and give up on the rest of the head […]

Another Liner Brush Test with a Direct Brush Portrait

Here’s another direct brush painting I did with a liner brush.  I used only the Princeton Select Liner P3750L-1 #1 to make this portrait.  I found it difficult to write with it (though not as difficult as some of the others I’ve tested), but just in case I’ll transcribe my notes: Soft, good pigment load, […]

Leftover Paint

Sometimes I’m just in a mood. I might have a lot of paint leftover on the palette, I might start drawing with a tool I don’t usually draw with and want to cover it up; I might… On this day it was a little bit of all of that—just exploring and experimenting. When the red […]

In Context: Minimal Collage

This is one of those posts where the in context page says it all. Or does it? I could go on. And on. Let’s just say this was a bookbinding scrap of my handprinted paper. It showed up while I was clearing things away and boxing things for the downsizing. I love it. Lots of […]

For the Love of Negative Space

I hear all sorts of things from my journaling students. “How much negative space should I leave on my journal spread?” “How much space should surround my focal point?” “How much text and how much more illustration should I put on my page spread?” “How should I arrange these 5 things on my page spread […]

Liner Brush Test Sheet

Most of  you might not want to wait until I finish testing all the liner and rigger brushes I’m going to be testing to hear which is my favorite. Frankly I don’t know how long this project is going to take me.  So in the interim I’m posting my initial test sheets (which are two […]
