New Painting – Princess Isadora – #drawthisinyourstyle Challenge

Draw This In Your Style Challenge

Princess Isadora – Watercolor ink painting ©CarolinaRusso

This month I have participated to another inspiring painting challenge the second hosted this year by Artist Annie Stegg Gerard on Instagram.
Annie challenged us for a “Draw this your style challenge, posting her oil painting “Princess Isadora”. I have participated to her first challenge painting “Princess Cordelia” and of course I wanted to participate again. I loved to paint Isadora in my style. Annie gave us no restrictions and pure freedom to re-create her beautiful painting in anyway we wanted.  Her Art is ethereal and dreamy, make you think about fantastic fairytales. I loved to paint my vision of  Princess Isadora, according to Annie she is Cordelia’s older sister, so now I have re-created the two beautiful sisters in my style and medium. I am happy with the outcome.

About Annie’s art world….
Inspired by nature, folklore and mythology, her work evokes emotion and imagination in the viewer.  Annie has a special love for the 18h century Rococo painters who have had a large influence on her own method. She finds inspiration in their imagination, and the dreamlike palette and lively brushwork that combine to create a wonderful atmosphere of enchantment.” I suggest you to visit her website at Gallery Gerard
