Day 13 – Watercolor Painting ©CarolinaRusso

Hello friends,
I am so sorry that I have been quite and I haven’t posted lately. Not even for this beautiful event this year I am going to create one painting at week I have been very busy lately fulfilling orders for my Scott Hutchison Tribute Portrait.  I also had some very sad days I have lost two pets in the last 10 days so my heart is grieving!

Today painting it is off of the official prompt list.  The title I gave is “Universal Love”  is a watercolor enhanced with gold and fine line work with ink. I love the contrast of the raw sketch style in addition to the watercolor.

Art For Music – Preview! Album Cover a Collaboration with Nu-San

 

Nu Nostalgia by Nu_San (Vinyl Album Cover) Original Painting ©CarolinaRusso

ART FOR MUSIC!

A New Collaboration and Coming Soon Release!

Today post is just a preview for this interesting project and a new collaboration. This project  at the moment still a work in progress but I love to share what we are working on.  This post feature the release of my  new watercolor painting!

This is a bigger painting than my usual size,  is a custom artwork  requested in a specific size which is 12 x 24 inches. This is the result of another great collaboration and very unique custom commission. I am happy that I can finally talk a little and reveal few details about this new beautiful project. During the month of November 2017, I was contacted by Electronic Music Composer  Sandy Bain aka “Nu-San” from Scotland, UK. Nu-San loves my art and already own some of my work. This time he was working on his new music album and had an idea. He asked me to create an “Original Painting” inspired by a “Gothic haunting style” in my own style that he wants to  use as the album cover for his coming soon new album with the title “Nu Nostalgia”.  Nu-San still working on some of the final tracks and I cannot give all the details at this moment because still a work in progress until the album would be released. As you can see the image of my painting isn’t too big and I have posted only one little close up photo, also they have a huge watermark on it for ©Copyright reasons since the album isn’t released.  For now I can only share this  preview post of my painting, I will share more in another post in the near future.

What a wonderful project!

I am so honored and grateful, thankful beyond words that Nu-San did think about my art to illustrate his music. I love music and love to support music artists with my art. I always wanted to create an artwork that would be illustrating a music album as a “Cover of an Album”, I am so happy that this wish came true. Nu-San discography include other albums but this one is the first that would be made in “Vinyl” and it is a dream coming true for Nu-San. I am so happy that we can share this achievement, I find it to be very special. Thank you Sandy for this great and exciting collaboration!

The watercolor painting that I have created, is going to be the “Cover” of Nu-San new music album and would and be released in “Vinyl and CDs” during the next few months or earlier. I don’t know the exact release date but I will write another blog post when it happens with more photos of the finished product and more info.

This project and watercolor painting would be also part of my Collection Series, check my Gallery  “ART FOR MUSIC” a series of artworks inspired by music artists reflecting my passion for music. In this series, I have created artworks using several media, traditional watercolor paintings, ink drawings, digital art, photo manipulation and any other media that will inspire my creations. At the same time this art series is also a feature here on my Blog for the music artists that I collaborate with.

Nu-San

Nu-San is a solo project and electronic music producer and composer from Scotland, UK. He has composed original chill out and dance tracks and creates  unique haunting sounds and techno music, that’s the way I can best describe the sound of his music.  I can’t wait to listen what he has created for the new coming album!

This is one of the photos of  “Nu-San” that inspired my Portrait for the album cover, you can see his face in my painting!

My painting is a watercolor and ink portrait in my signature style with a hint of Gothic and a light feeling of darkness. Nu-San asked me to include ravens birds, a graveyard scene, a castle and gave me the freedom to create. I enjoyed painting this atmospheric portrait while listening to Nu-San music to be able to deliver more in-depth the spirit of  Nu-San in my creation, we are very happy about how the painting turned out and now we can’t wait to see it as finished product.

Making Art From Nature Finds

Ink Drawing on Eucalyptus Bark – ©Carolina Russo

Today I am happy to share one of my latest work. I have been busy with some interesting commissions that I will reveal very soon in my next coming posts.

In the mean time, today I like to share what I have created out of a beautiful nature find, a unique piece of “Eucalyptus Tree Bark” I have found this piece near the tree where it belonged, it did speak to me and I took it.  I love the shape is not a flat piece it is curved and is about 13 inches long and 4.5 inches wide in the widest part. This piece is in perfect conditions the grain has a lovely natural white patina.  I did nothing to it than just passing a soft cloth to brush off eventual dust. Sorry I haven’t taken a photo of the natural bark before drawing, I guess I was too excited and inspired to start working on it.
What turned out is a mysterious face and ethereal portrait, created with only a black and a white Ink pens. I loved and enjoyed drawing this piece very much.  Following the natural grain of the wood  and letting the curves lead my drawing allowing this face to come alive and out to us. It is a one of a kind piece, I don’t have a title yet but you all can help me to find one, you can tell me  in the comments what do you see in her expression? What she is telling you? Your help is very much appreciated and together we can find a title for her.

Nature is a great source of inspiration in many ways and especially in Art because it stimulates your creativity helping you to relax and feel grounded. When you are able to feel connected with the earth,  you are and feel centered and balanced letting go negativity no matter what’s going on around you. I love nature in all the aspects and benefits it give us. I based my life on nature and natural remedies to take care myself health wise and successfully. I enjoy always time spent outdoor it is so precious walking in the wood or enjoying a walk on the shore near the ocean, I like hiking and exploring places in appreciation of what often we take for granted.

Nature is precious and inspire me in many ways and in all the mediums I work with. I am always on the look out to find interesting things that I can create with. I also have based my whole Jewelry Collection on nature. I am so happy when I can find interesting and inspiring pieces as gift of nature to collect and create with.
I love leaves, tree bark, gemstones, fossils, sea shells, driftwood, flowers, branches and more. I love to salvage these precious finds and give them a new life and purpose through my art.
