Still Playing with the Kuretake AI Liner Ultra Fine Brush Pen

Enjoying working on ThSaunders/Waterford 90lb. hot press watercolor paper in a book I bound that’s about 8 inches square.  I’m still playing with the Kuretake AI Liner Ultra Fine Brush Pen. It doesn’t have a long life—not if you use it to do entire sketches. If you only brought it in for fine-line work at […]

It’s Fun to Think about the Space Around the Subject

What happens if our drawing bleeds off the top of a page or the side of the page? What happens when we focus on the ears and the space around them? What happens when we pull focus with color? What happens when we work with junk paint on our palette and find a new skin […]

Page by Page

  Page by page I’ve been working through one of my last remaining hand-bound journals containing ThSaunders/Waterford 90 lb. high white, hot press watercolor paper. The great news is that they are still making this paper so that I could bind some more of these approximately 8-inch square books. This is one of the recent […]

Staying Up Late to Draw

  The page spread text is today’s post. The rest is just details…  I painted first, then let the paper dry and added the ink, a bit of a turn around for me. I was working with the Kuretake AI Liner Ultra fine brush pen. This was towards the end of the life of my […]

Another Green Sheet

When I’m testing a pen or a paper (or in this case both) I like to work with them for several days. So the day after that green lady from my previous post, I sketched this woman—again a fair goer from @earthsworld. My thoughts on this face were a bit different. I added a bit […]

Why That Color of Paper?

Artists make choices all day long. Sometimes the choices are obvious. I drew my dogs all the time, obviously because they were live in life models. I draw birds because they have occupied my mind my whole life. I work in watercolor and pen and ink because I love the notions and physical realities of […]

Drawing to Improve Your Mood

Recovering from the  iliac vein dissection has been difficult. It’s placed limits on my mobility and energy. I’ve had to change how I think about exercise. My heart is broken that I can’t cycle any more. One morning I wrote this caption on the next page in my journal, after a painful effort of exertion. […]

What’s on Patreon/RozInterim in April 2024?

Over on my Patreon/RozInterim site this month I’ve got a dog portrait demo during which I discuss holding shapes in your mind, and playing with temperature and color. You can check it out by subscribing at the link in the first paragraph. I hope you get a lot of sketching done this weekend!

Hesitation: Reluctant to Start a New Project

  Recently one of my students wrote to me that she was hesitant about starting a new project. Hesitancy springs from a lot of issues and conditions. Hesitancy can arise as resistance and part of the ongoing barrage of negative talk you might experience from your internal critic. It can also exist because you have […]
