#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 ❤

Details about my watercolor paintings:
 I used  French Artists Watercolors  Sennelier  l’Aguarelle,  Arches Watercolor Paper 140lb, 100% Cotton, cold pressed, Grain Fin.
