Roz’s 2018 Minnesota State Fair Journal

Today’s gallery contains all the pages of my 2018 Minnesota State Fair Journal. This year I was able to attend on three days. There are sections indicating the start of each new day, and stating which day was the sketch out (I could only attend one of the sketch out days). I worked on 300 […]

This is the first sketch on the gray paper I did this day. I started with red pencil, but abandoned it because I didn't like the red on the paper. I went instead to the Pentel Brush pen.

Summer Chicken Sketch Out with Metro Sketchers

Earlier this summer a local Minneapolis couple who keep chickens invited Metro Sketchers over to their home—they have 6 chickens! Sketchers filled the yard on fold out and lawn chairs while the chickens weaved in and about nibbling on cracked corn sprinkled on the grass.

Minnesota State Fair Journal Update

Left: This year at the Fair, at least on a few days, there were some birds. A big change from last year when bird flu hit and birds were banned from the Fair. The sad news is that the pigeon fancy took a huge hit. We were down from hundreds of entries to less than […]

Don’t Get Attached

Above: Puffin sketches made at the zoo in an 8 x 8 inch handmade journal which contains defunct printmaking paper. Verso: first sketches of the day made with a dried out Staedtler Pigment Liner.

Turkeys in the Yard

Above: Quick sketch of one of the wandering turkeys in our neighborhood in my 7.75 x 9.75 inch Strathmore 500 Series Mixed Media Softcovered Journal. I scratched this out with a Faber-Castell Pitt Calligraphy Pen standing on the porch looking into the yard. Then I retired indoors to slap on some watercolor from memory. Instead […]
