#WorldWatercolorMonth2020 Day 9

Today I like to talk a little bit about the creative process of this painting and how evolved. The painting started just as pure energy, I had no plan of what to paint so I was free. I started with a wash of colors on wet paper, I just let the colors bleed with the water, you can see my work in progress in the photo below. Until then I didn’t know yet what would be the end result, I took time observing the colors and the soft shapes then I started working with my ink pen creating  fine lines, free hand no pencil sketch and a beautiful Peonias flower appeared.

Day #7 World Watercolor Month 2020

Day 7 – Prompt Free -Watercolor ©CarolinaRusso

#WorldWatercolorMonth2020 Day 7

World Watercolor Month 2020 – Day 7
Prompt: Free

Today painting started yesterday on Day 6, it was a work in progress! This painting is something a little bit different than my usual, I love to paint little seascapes or landscapes  in loose watercolor technique or style, I think I need to paint subject like this more often.
This watercolor is painted on the precious and beautiful “Arches” paper. The view is pure imagination I painted without any photo reference, it’s just as how I envisioned it in my mind. I am sure exist somewhere on Earth or else.  I just don’t know where is. I wanted to give almost an antique feel to this small painting, I have hand-cut and burned the edges of the paper on a candle flame which add a nice detail. The prompt “Free” makes me think at us surviving and overcoming the reality of our time feeling free, also makes me imagine at open spaces, the ocean and pure nature.
I love how it turned out 💗 I hope you do too!

What do you think? And what is the first thing that comes in your mind when you look at this painting?
I really would like to know! Please leave comments ❤

Watercolor – Queen Flower

Queen Flower – Original Watercolor ©CarolinaRusso


Exploring a new idea 

Today I am excited to share with you one of my latest watercolor painting having the title  ” Queen Flower”.
I painted in my traditional signature style in watercolor and ink but this time not on the usual watercolor paper. I came across this 10 inches diameter paper lace doily at home and my first thought was to make a ink drawing on it! I love to explore new artistic and creative ways to paint, testing papers or surfaces and see how watercolor works especially on unusual ones! I am always driven to try new techniques and materials. I have to say that the combination of watercolor and ink pen did work really well without any bleeding through the paper! I am happy and pleased with the outcome! The watercolor looks great on this paper doily, the original painting is lovely and would look great with a floating frame.  I will sure create more paintings on paper doilies in the future.

The Original Painting is Available for sale!

Tears In The Fire

Tears In The Fire – Watercolor ©Carolina Russo

Hello everyone,

I hope you all had a great start of the year!
I know lately I have been pretty quiet and didn’t post here on the Blog as much I’d like to. I took a break to recharge my creativity.  I didn’t know how to feel in this beginning of the year, there is so much going on in the world.

Today post is about the release of my new watercolor painting with the title Tears In The Fire this is my first painting of the 2020 and it is very special to me.
I feel so much sadness for the heartbreaking situation affecting Australia from months under the catastrophic wildfires that is destroying, animals, wildlife, natural habitats, and people.  Sidney University experts estimated that over 1 billion of animals has tragically perished it’s heartbreaking!

I gave the title Tears In The Fire because I can only imagine how much, tears, pain and suffering these beautiful animals are going through. My painting is dedicated to the wonderful Koalas 🐨 and to all the rescuers that are helping and caring daily for them to heal painful burnt paws and injuries and to all the other animals in desperate need of care surviving this horrific fire.

I hope that my painting can rise awareness and give a tiny contribution to support the wonderful Koalas and wildlife victims in this terrible time for them. I love all the animals and now they needs our help, together we can make a little difference in their recovery. Since I was a child I dream to one day being able to hold a lovely Koala in my arms! I hope I will one day! ♥️

Prints of my painting are now available for purchase as Open Edition signed and hand enhanced in size 5×7 and 8×10 inches please visit my >>  ETSY Shop
