Weekly Photo Challenge: Earth – A Blossomed California Sunset In April…

A Blossomed Sunset In April – Photo ©Carolina Russo

Today I came across the post of the weekly photo challenge at The Daily Post and also if this is the theme for last Wednesday April 19 and tomorrow would be a new theme,  I still want to participate to this one, with one of my latest photo and share the beauty of nature with you all.

From The Daily Post: The theme for this week is “Earth” celebrating the Earth Day and our planet. This week, share an image that means “earth” to you — whether it’s a panorama of a landscape that takes your breath away, a close-up revealing a detail in nature, or another scene that honors the outdoors, we welcome your takes on the theme!

The photo I am sharing today is a beautiful Southern California sunset filled with lovely yellow flowers. I took this photo some days ago during my daily evening hike. I love my walk at sunset time it give me the opportunity to take beautiful photos of sunsets and fierce colored skies. California is a wonderful place for sunset photography no matter where you are if on the hills or near the ocean. This photo was taken on the hills of a trail I love to go. The nature here is beautiful lately especially after all the rain we had a month ago, everything turned out beautifully green a joy for the eyes since here often the hills looks yellow brownish and dry.
I enjoyed my walk a lot lately with these beautiful kind of evenings, but this week is already getting too warm and everything is already changing color.

When I took this photo, I really wanted to capture all the elements that makes our earth beautiful, the orange fierce sunset sky, the clouds, the land and the flowers. I almost felt I was creating one of my paintings, I had a clear idea of how I wanted the photo to be. To get this angle for my shot I had to almost laying on the ground! Turned out exactly what I’ve envisioned! I hope that you enjoy this portrait of nature as symbol of our precious Earth as much as I do.

Dandelions Magic Wishes

Dandelions Magic Wishes

Limited Palette, only two colors Blue Ultramarine and Grey Payne.

I loved to paint this Dandelions with such a limited palette of two colors, it is very challenging but I really love the result and the lightness that I was able to give to my painting. I usually paint with a very limited palette of no more than five/six colors I like to mix them and create my own.
The goal of working with a limited palette is to improve skills, gain more control and faster paintings I suggest everyone to give it a try. Also I did the drawing straight with the ink pen no pencil.

Details about my watercolors:
 watercolors are outlined with black ink pens. I used  French Artists Watercolors  Sennelier  l’Aguarelle 12 demi-godets half-pans travel metal box  Ink pens used a black ink  Pilot Prera fountain pen fine nib . I painted on a  8 x 11 inches mixed media sketchbook.


All my watercolors paintings are available for Pre-Order in Limited Edition Art Prints
