Inktober 2020 – MabsDrawlloweenClub Day 1: Fish – Werewolf

Day 1 Fish – Werewolf

Day 1:  Fish – Werewolf
Double Challenge combined prompts #Drawlloweentober 
Inktober:  Fish
MabsDrawlloweenClub:  Werewolf

It’s that creative time again welcome October!
This month brings some of the most loved drawing challenges Inktober  begins today!
This is my 5th year participating and once again I decided to create my drawings inspired by the official prompts of my  two favorite challenges (read my previous post here)
The challenge Mabsdrawlloweenclub is usually inspired by dark folklore and legend’s characters it has an Halloween theme.  Inktober prompts can be anything usually common things. I find it  interesting to see what I am able to create also when sometimes the two prompts of the day aren’t easy to combine! Doing an Hybrid challenge will refine creativity and skills!

For today drawing I had to combine Werewolf and Fish I guess I did it nicely and I am happy with my painting! I am not so much inspired by dark creepy or scary characters so I try to make them look less scary and more nice :-). I have created my Werewolf in a lovely female form taking a bath at the full moon light enjoying the company of a lovely Koi Fish.

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

I am not going to say more… as I don’t want to spoil the story if you intend to watch it! I have to say, that I enjoyed to watch all the 3 seasons with my daughter very much it is a very interesting , fun and dramatic series and very captivating! Now waiting for the 4th Season hopefully in 2020.

Inktober 2019 – MabsDrawlloweenClub Day 26 Dark – Huli Jing

Day 26 Dark – Huli Jing

Day 26:  Dark – Huli Jing
Double Challenge combined prompts #Drawlloweentober2019 
Inktober:  Dark
MabsDrawlloweenClub2019:  Huli Jing

Today prompt “Huli Jing” is inspired by the Chinese Mythology (Chinese狐狸精; literally: ‘fox spirit’) or jiuweihu (Chinese: 九尾狐; literally: ‘nine-tailed fox’) are Chinese mythological creatures who can be either good or bad spirits. During the Han dynasty, the development of ideas about interspecies transformation had taken place in Chinese culture. The idea that non-human creatures with advancing age could assume human form. As these traditions developed, the fox’s capacity for transformation was shaped. (Source WikipediA)

I hope you like my drawing and vision of the Huli Jing representing the 9 tales Fox Spirit, the black minimalistic background is for combine the prompt Dark. I think it suits greatly with my composition.

Inktober 2019 – MabsDrawlloweenClub Day 24 Dizzy – La Llorona

Day 24 – Dizzy – La Llorona

Day 24:  Dizzy – La Llorona
Double Challenge combined prompts #Drawlloweentober2019 
Inktober:  Dizzy
MabsDrawlloweenClub2019:  La Llorona

Today prompt “La Llorona” is what inspired the creation of my whole drawing.

The Legend:In Latin American folklore, La Llorona also known as the Weeping Woman or the cryer, is one of the most famous legends. It is the story of a woman. The lore states a woman was abandoned by her husband and was left alone to raise her two sons, whom she instead drowned in a river out of grief and anger. As a result of her actions the woman is condemned to wander for all eternity until she finds the bodies of her children, often causing misfortune to those who are near or hear her. The oral story represents La Llorona as a person, legend, ghost, goddess, metaphor and symbol“. (source WikipediA)

This is my Vision: of La Llorona I wanted to capture her in a specific emotional state, which is that moment when after all the pain and sorrow, when the sadness took all her tears, when there is nothing else out of her… that moment when she needs to surrender to herself and let it go all the pain, is that moment when she comes out of the dark, see barely the light and when she gets her first breath with a feeling of relief 🖤this is what I wanted to capture in her. I hope I did! Today drawing was a little on the darkside but that was the only way to represent La Llorona.

❤ Details about my drawings: Supplies used for my Ink drawing ink pens used COPIC Multiliner Black ink #03 and 05, Micron dark red ink #, brown #003. Fountain Pen Pilot Prera Fine Nib. Alvin Draft/Matic pencil #03 Limited Edition Pink Mab Graves.
