Day #7 World Watercolor Month 2017

Day 7 – Frida Kahlo Portrait (Off Prompt)- Original Watercolor ©Carolina Russo

Today painting is an off prompt! I decide instead to paint a tribute portrait to Surrealist Artist “Frida Kahlo” this is a commemorative month since yesterday was her birthday. Artist all over the world are giving their tribute. I made my portrait in my style but something a little different from my usual, it has the Surrealist touch, I painted inspired by her life story and by several of her original paintings like ” Self-Portrait With Bonito -1941″, “The Broken Column -1944”, “The Deer Wondered – 1946″, ”  Elements like flowers, animals, arrows and internal body parts are often appearing in her paintings as her creative and unique way of artistic expression.

Frida Kahlo mostly painted self portraits one of her famous quotes says: “I paint self-portraits because I am so often alone, because I am the person I know best”
