All the way from beautiful Scotland, UK 🇬🇧 to USA 🇺🇸 California a great indie publication  “Razur Cuts VI” by Editor Derek Steel is now available it was just released yesterday 12/19/2018! This is the issue number VI! Razur Cuts is a magazine that carries underground and punk style inspired feelings, it is a new version of what could be a traditional “Zine” publication but even more as a real magazine and it looks beautiful! It is published out of Falkirk, Scotland by the kindness of Editor Derek Steel this magazine goes alive with few very interesting issues several times throughout the year having great content. Feature local and international contributors that submit their work of art, photography, music interviews, reviews and literature, it  is locally distributed in cool places and it is sold online by contacting directly the “Editor” via email, I will post the details down below. I love what Derek Steel is doing with this publication, he loves to discover and highlight new talents giving the opportunity to publish and give exposure to their work being discovered by a bigger and international audience.  I really appreciate Derek and all his effort doing this it’s precious for an independent artist like me. I came across Derek months ago, we connected and he discovered my Art inviting me to this collaboration and to create the Magazine  Front Cover for this issue #VI. I loved the opportunity and here we are today. I feel so honored and proud to be part of such a wonderful project as Razur Cuts contributor and to be one of the Artists invited to create the Cover for this issue!

My artwork is the Punk red hair girl and the razor with the name razur cuts spelled backwards. I loved to create this watercolor and ink painting as it represents greatly the street style which is what the magazine is about. I am happy that with my contribution I help to make this Zine publication shine to the world and through my art bring it to USA!

♥️ Thank you so much to the Editor Derek Steel and to all the other contributors that made this possible!

Welcome December!

 

Hello everyone today is the first day of December and it is snowing on my Blog!

I love snow but living in Southern California is quite impossible from my location ito have snow unless I go up to the mountains when it’s snowing there.
So… I have to pretend to enjoy a peaceful snowfall and have it on my Blog! ❤ LOL

This month there are some nice watercolor painting challenges starting today! I hope to find the time to join one of them like I did last year, I am thinking at the   “12 Days” Challenge hosted on Instagram and Facebook  by The Bad Apple Artists Collective

Bad Apple 12 Days Challenge Official Prompt List 2018

If you want to play along check the above link, or just join me doing this challenge you can follow along and show me if you create anything! These  Art challenges are a great way to create new work, I love to create new series for my collections of Limited Edition Prints, challenges are great to spice up your creativity and to work on your skills and habits to paint or drawing daily and to have ideas if you’re scared to the blank paper! 😉

For now I wish you all a wonderful Day and a Happy December!

Let it Snow!

Welcome November! A Spectacular California Sunset

November in Southern California – Photo ©CarolinaRusso

Welcome November!

During last few days I had a little break from painting to relax my mind and recharge after the full creative month of October!
The 31 days drawing INKTOBER challenge is a commitment and I wanted to stay focused during the whole month, without missing a day. It  was my plan from the beginning to use Inktober to create a new drawing series and collection inspired by the prompts. The 31 drawings are available in my Shop as Limited Edition Prints. If you had your eyes on a drawing visit my Gallery and If you missed my October posts, or you’re new on my Blog,  you can see and order prints of my Inktober  drawings visiting my Gallery, I am happy I made it to the end without missing days. I thank you  for following my Inktober and for your on going support and encouragement.

I cannot believe we are already in November, where the time goes?

Here in US where I live the weather still warm and feels not really Fall, is actually more of a “Summer” weather and is nice to spend outdoors evenings until last. These days we’re having intense sunsets in Southern California.  Yesterday on my evening walk I took this video, for you to see the beauty and feel the magic of the sky! The intense color was overwhelming!  What a great gift from nature! I am happy I was able to witness this sunset and capture this video. I love to share it with you, in hope to brighten your day where ever you are!

Note: No edit were made on the video, no filter, the colors are just as I took it with my iPhone!

I hope you enjoyed the sunset and until next post
I wish you a wonderful day or night.

Thank You!

Happy FALL 2018

The Season is changing the Autumnal Equinox  2018 is here HAPPY FALL everyone!

Let’s celebrate this beautiful Season ❤

I leave you with my Wild Sunflower watercolor painting I made time ago.  I painted the sunflower directly with the watercolors without trace it with pencil before. I loved letting the water flow and blend with the colors. This time I also wanted to create a different effect leaving some of the leafs in white and just outline them with the black ink pen, the white leafs are the only thing that I traced in pencil I really like how it turned out and I hope that you do too let me know your impressions! ❤


Details about my
doodlewash:
 watercolor outlined with black and blue ink pen. I used  French Artists Watercolors  Sennelier  l’Aguarelle 12 demi-godets half-pans travel metal box  and Pigma Micron Black ink #01 and a Blue Pentel ink pen. Painted over a cold press 140 lb watercolor paper pad size 7.5 x 9 inches!



All my watercolors paintings are available for Sale in Limited Edition Fine Art Prints, for more info to order  contact me or…..did you gave a visit to my new Shop?

 

HAPPY FALL
Have a wonderful day or evening!
