This portrait is an ink drawing. I have made a pencil sketch first and worked over with the ink pens this is not like my usual watercolor painting it is all black ink. I love the minimalism and contrast of the black ink on the white paper with a touch of precious gold ink between the hair and filled in the background’s oval shape.

Wander In The Abyss #MerMay2017

  

Wander In The Abyss – Original Watercolor ©Carolina Russo

– Wander In The Abyss Mermaid #MerMay2017!

The month of May is over in few days and so the #MerMay2017 challenge, I loved to participate and during the month I re-posted some of my mermaids I previously painted and I made this new mermaid painting.
I am sorry I haven’t post much lately, it was because I had to fix a problem with my computer, thankfully right now is all working and fixed! I haven’t been writing here on my Blog but I did post my work on Instagram and if you follow me there you know I have been pretty busy drawing and painting!

Wander In The Abyss – Original Watercolor ©Carolina Russo

Today I am excited about my  ” New Release” and  to share with you my finished  “Wander In The Abyss – Mermaid” a watercolor and ink painting. If you came across my previous post you remember this mermaid and that I was showing my work in progress, from the pencil sketch to the begin stage of watercolor, if you missed that post, maybe you like to read it and see how this painting come alive. This watercolor mermaid had a pretty long process, lots of patience and layers for me to be able to obtain this look and all the shades of colors on a “not watercolor paper” like the gray toned paper sketchbook that I used. This time, I really wanted to try something different using a toned paper for background and I wanted to see how  I could use watercolors and inks on a paper for dry media.  I can say that It’s pretty tricky! I am happy with the way the painting turned out!

A Limited Edition of 20 Art Prints is now available only hand embellished
I will add by hand the gold ink to embellish each print and turn it in one of a kind and special. It is very difficult to print the gold ink from an original painting because the scanner and printer aren’t able to give the real gold pigments and spark, that’s why I decided to do only a very small run of special prints hand embellished. When the 20 prints are sold out I won’t print them again and with time they will increase in value!  Prints are size 8×10 inches, I offer a special discounted price for  my friends and for anyone that  place an order here on the Blog Price is $45 + $8 Shipping via USPS Priority Mail within US if you like to reserve a print just fill in the form linked.

Details about my painting:
 I Sketched on a Strathmore 400 Series medium surface 80 lb – gray toned paper large sketchbook size 9 x 12 inches for dry media.  I used a  Draft/Matic Pencil  0.5mm by Mab Graves Limited Edition for ALVIN for my sketch  and I used  French Artists Watercolors  Sennelier  l’Aguarelle and Artist’s Loft watercolor pan set I used this set for a opaque- chalk effect. Ink pen COPIC Multiliner #0.03 and a SAKURA  Metallic gold Gelly Roll pen.

Forest Goddess – Step by Step Watercolor Painting FAQ and Tips!


“Forest Goddess” 
a Step by Step watercolor painting FAQ and Tips.

Today post feature the release of my new painting titled “Forest Goddess”!

Who follow me on Instagram @carolinarussoart  had already seen some images of this painting posted as WIP  “work in progress”. Today I am releasing the finished piece and posting all the photos here. This is a post different from my usual. And if you are a beginner artist or a creative you will find some good tips. From time to time I have been asked many interesting questions about my creative process while working on a watercolor painting. Today I will use this post to share my answers to some of these questions and write about the steps I take while creating my paintings. This isn’t a tutorial but I will guide you through my process and giving some good tips that works for me. I have just completed this painting “Forest Goddess” and while working I took several photos to show you the work in  progress from the starting sketch to the end, which will help to illustrate my answers to the questions. For this post I have selected three interesting and helpful questions for now I will answer and give a tip to these ones, maybe in the future I will make a FAQ page.

1) Question:  What does inspire you?
I get asked this question a lot,  isn’t the first time that I answer that inspiration for me can come from anything, I can be looking outside the window, or reading, or while I am walking in nature or browsing on internet and more. Anything can inspire and it can happen anytime, anywhere I have just be ready to receive my inspiration and transform it in a tangible painting!

>Tip: A good thing I always do and this is my tip for you is to always carry a small notebook or sketchbook a pencil and a pen to take notes or for a quick sketch, take it with you especially when you’re on the go out of home or travelling, because when an inspiration or idea strikes your mind, it will go away very fast as it came, so it need to be captured on any sort of paper if you want to work on it later on! This is good to do, not just for artists, but also for writers or anyone that has a creative mind and makes creativity a part of their daily life.

Stage 1 Inspiration and pencil sketch – For this painting I was inspired looking at images of wildlife, trees and animals and I got in the mood  to create an ethereal goddess inspired by the beautiful nature of the forest. Here below you can see my pencil sketch and how my inspiration of this beautiful imaginary Goddess begin to come alive. I made my sketch on watercolor paper because this is the medium I chose for this painting.

Forest Goddess -Sketch – Original Watercolor ©Carolina Russo

2) Question: Do you paint/draw from your imagination or from what you see around you?
This is a good question! I actually draw or paint very often from my own imagination or from memories I have, I also love drawing from what I see around me. It depends of what I am drawing or creating. Sometimes I use reference photos if I am sketching something realistic or something that I never sketched before.  To be precise on a realistic drawing I refer to images. But many times I paint straight with the watercolor on paper without even make a prior pencil sketch. I like to do that especially with flowers. I like to let the watercolor flow and create the shapes then guide of my brush. When I paint faces I prefer to make my pencil drawing first and then lay the watercolors. In  “Forest Goddess” painting I made the drawing from my own imagination reference. I love to bring imaginary faces to life that’s how I made the pencil sketch that you see in the photo above. I haven’t used any reference photo for her face. Drawing faces without reference isn’t easy especially for beginners, you need to practice a lot and get familiar with face shapes, eyes, nose, lips, facial expressions, it takes time and practice to memorize and be able to create faces without photo references.

>Tip: Practice a lot observe everything in detail, challenge yourself to draw daily not just to train your imagination and memory but also your hand. At first keep drawing easy things, many times with photo references, then when you feel more confident, try drawing without photo reference and see how much your memory works from your imagination. I don’t want to discourage anyone but keep in mind that takes time, consistency and perseverance. Don’t stress about it enjoy the process it’s not a race, just love what you’re doing and you will see how far you go.

Stage 2 start painting with watercolor – At this point my painting is at the begin of stage two. After the pencil drawing I am starting with the watercolors on the face. I decided that I wanted to use a very delicate palette because I want this portrait to look ethereal and I limited myself to use just three or four colors the most. In my imagination  I have seen her figure very delicate,  light, airy, heavenly, and the dominant color was white that’s how she appeared in my mind. She is  wearing a headpiece symbolizing the nature and it is a crown made of small roses and thin branches. She has beautiful long hair moved by a light breeze and is wearing a white celestial dress trimmed with gold. I painted this portrait leaving the background purposely white to give lightness showing the beautiful grain of the watercolor paper.

Forest Goddess – Original Watercolor ©Carolina Russo

 On this photo you can see that I started to paint her hair playing with the tones of gray creating light and darker shades to emphasize the hair movement. At this stage I have been pretty pleased with the lightness of the outcome and got struck on what to do next. I loved this barely use of watercolor in contrast with the pencil sketch and I have been debating if keep going on with my usual style adding the use of ink pens and line work. I loved already how it was just like this and I was afraid to ruin it with the definition added by the pen work. I had to think…I took a break of a couple of days to go back on later and see how I would feel about it.

3) Question: What do you do when you get stuck on a painting?
Every artist get stuck at times it’s normal and part of being an artist. When you get stuck means something and you need to listen when this happens. The first thing you need to do is leave everything and “STOP” walk away from your artwork put it away where you cannot see it. Take a deep breath and go to do something else, leave your studio, go out to have a walk, do something that distract yourself. Come back only when you’re ready to look at it again, it can be after one hour or days only come back when you feel ready to give it a serious look, contemplate in silence and observe, then ask yourself what is needed in your painting and you will get the answer, your painting will tell you just looking at it.

>Tip: When you get stuck take a break “Stop” everything for a while do something else. Come back later when you’re ready and listen what your painting is telling you. Never give up on a painting, if you’re not ready go back to it again later.

 Stage 3 decisions and final touches: At this point I was at stage three I came back to my painting after being a part with it for several days! And I have decided to go on with the ink pen and doing some fine line work, I used Copic Multiliner pens with #0.1 and #0.03 tips this will  leave the painting just more defined but still have a feeling of lightness. I also used touch of gold ink on the head-piece the thin branches of her crown are in gold ink and on the dress neckline there is a gold trim. I gave a touch of white ink just to give more contrast in her hair.

At this point my painting is finished! I am really pleased with the outcome and I hope that you like it too. Today I release the Limited Edition Art Prints for this new painting and it would be available for pre-order here on my Blog first.

One last question for this post….

4) Question: Why did you chose the medium of watercolors?
During the past 20 years, I evolved in my passions, experiencing my artistic visions and taught myself other skills and art forms that I love to work with such as digital art and photography. Watercolor painting came to me naturally into my life. I never took a watercolor class. I also enjoy acrylics and mixed media, but my favorite medium when I paint is watercolors. I love the fluidity, transparency and elegance of this beautiful medium. Experimentation with different media and exploring new techniques is something that I always loved to do. I like to explore the horizons of my creativity and see where it takes me.

Tip: Don’t be afraid to tray new mediums and form of art, there is a lot out there to experiment and work with.  Open your horizons to find your voice.

Nest – Original Watercolor ©CarolinaRusso


– April new watercolor month challenge:  Spring Things!

Yesterday prompt list for the monthly challenge at doodlewash was  “NEST”  I am joining in this month whenever is possible.

Yesterday prompt was “Nest”  sorry I have posted this late for yesterday but is good for today.  Also if my day was busy, I am happy I managed to paint. I love “Nests” I think they are so precious and beautiful almost magical when it happens to came across one. I painted an illustration of a traditional nest but with blue eggs.

I have read some interesting facts about blue eggs: “The eastern bluebird lays the smallest blue egg – approximately 4/5 of an inch – of all the songbirds that lay blue eggs. The eggs of western and mountain bluebirds are slightly larger than the eastern bluebirds, but smaller than the eggs of robins, blue jays, starlings, thrushes and catbirds.” (Source:  sialis.org)

Details about my watercolors:
 watercolors are outlined with black, white pens. I used  French Artists Watercolors  Sennelier  l’Aguarelle,  Ink pens used  Pigma Micron Black and Dark Red ink #02 and a black ink  Pilot Prera fountain pen fine nib. Traced with a vintage Thinex Carmine Red 425T pencil. I painted on a mixed media sketckbook.

Umbrella – #WorldWatercolorGroup

Umbrella – Original Watercolor ©CarolinaRusso

   
– April new watercolor month challenge:  Spring Things!

Today prompt list for the monthly challenge at doodlewash is  “UMBRELLA”  I am joining in this month whenever is possible.

Today the prompt in Charlie list is “Umbrella” I painted an illustration of a traditional happy walk under the rain. I love to ear the sound of rain while I am about to sleep it is very calming, I also love the smell of the rain on the grass or near the ocean. I grow up in Italy where rains often during Winter time and I quite miss it now, because here where I live in California, the rain is like an event when it happens! But I have to say that this past month we have been pretty lucky to enjoy some days of good rain that turned the surrounding hills in a beautiful intense green color which is rare to see!

Details about my watercolors:
 watercolors are outlined with black, whithe and dark red pens. I used  French Artists Watercolors  Sennelier  l’Aguarelle,  Ink pens used  Pigma Micron Black and Dark Red ink #02 and a black ink  Pilot Prera fountain pen fine nib. I painted on a mixed media sketckbook.

Butterfly – Original Watercolor ©CarolinaRusso

   


– April new watercolor month challenge:  Spring Things!

Today prompt list for the monthly challenge at doodlewash is  “BUTTERFLY”  I am joining in this month whenever is possible.

Today the prompt Butterfly couldn’t be missed!  I love butterflies so much that I have a tattoo with a Monarch on my foot.  The butterfly has elegance, beauty and gorgeous colors they are just stunning and they have a beautiful meaning:
Butterflies are deep and powerful representations of life. Many cultures associate the butterfly with our souls. The Christian religion sees the butterfly as a symbol of resurrection. Around the world, people view the butterfly as representing endurance, change, hope, and life” ( Source gardenswithwings.com)
Today painting is a quick one that I sketched very fast. I had no much time and I am working in between several work in progress paintings, so I am glad I was able to manage my first watercolor of the month.

Details about my watercolors:
 watercolors are outlined with black pens. I used  French Artists Watercolors  Sennelier  l’Aguarelle,  Ink pens used  Pigma Micron Black ink #02 and a black ink  Pilot Prera fountain pen fine nib. I painted on a mixed media sketckbook.

Spring a Blythe Inspired Art Portrait

Spring – Original Watercolor ©CarolinaRusso

       
 Happy St. Patick’s Day!

Today My watercolor painting is the portrait of “Spring” a lovely and delicate creature, she has lovely long green hair braided with flowers and beautiful intense big blue eyes. I am inspired by the unique and beautiful Art Dolls custom-made for collectors. Better known as “Blythe Dolls” I love to paint and drawing Blythe dolls they are really pretty and one of the characteristics is that they have an over sized head and large beautiful eyes over a smaller body which make them a great subject for Pop Surrealism Art. Blythe dolls from years acquired a cult following of collectors, photographers and artists around the world. It’s always a joy to paint a portrait inspired, I came across lately to other artists following this inspiration and it is amazing that Blythe dolls acquired a cult following of collectors and eventually, photographers and artists around the world, if you are not so familiar with this you can read more about it here on Wikipedia.

My painting portrays an image of the coming Spring Season with her vibrant green hair and fresh flowers she is just there in the grass enjoying the beauty of a sunny day and I think she is also perfect to celebrate St. Patrick’s Day I wish to all of you a great one!

Details about my watercolors:
 This watercolor painting is outlined with black and white ink pens. I used  French Artists Watercolors  Sennelier,   Ink pens used are a black ink  Pilot Prera fountain pen fine nib  and a COPIC Multiliner #00.3 and Pigma Micron #05.  I painted on a  8 x 11 inches mixed media sketchbook.


This watercolor painting is available for Pre-Order in Limited Edition here on the Blog Art Prints   or on my Etsy Shop

Warm – Original Watercolor ©Carolina Russo


– March Challenge:  Paint What You Love!

Today prompt list for the monthly challenge at doodlewash is  “WARM”  I am joining in.

Today the word warm made me think at many of you out there that still have snow lately (you know I love snow!)  I have seen via social media lots of snow here in US, in other States than where I am, which is sunny and a little bit too much warm now for the season, over  80 degree feels like Summer during day time, especially this week. The weather has been little crazy playing hot and cool after the needed rain we had two weeks ago. Seems next week we will cool down!
Today painting is more of a cute illustration and is inspired by the latest snow, and my little girl need to keep warm! This is a quick one that I sketched very fast on my Hobonichi Planner!

I used  French Artists Watercolors  Sennelier  l’Aguarelle 12 demi-godets half-pans travel metal box  Ink pens used  Pigma Micron Black ink #02 and a black ink  Pilot Prera fountain pen fine nib. I painted on a Hobonichi Planner (Japan) over Tomoe River paper a very thin, lightweight paper great for fountain pens and not so wet watercolors.
