October Challenge

 

31 Days 31 Drawings

Every October, artists all over the world take on the InkTober drawing challenge by doing one ink drawing a day the entire month.

Anyone can do InkTober just pick up a pen and start drawing!

Hello everyone InkTober 2017 is behind the corner I can’t believe how fast time goes! Last year I loved to participate to this amazing challenge which gave me the opportunity to refine my sketchy skills and creativity!  During the event, following the “Official Prompt List” I have created a fantasy character her name is ©Ylia and I have illustrated her adventures inspired by the prompt words. If you follow me before last year, then you remember Ylia, here there is one of my 2016 InkTober entry so that you can see her, also if you like you can see all the other entries on my InkTober 2016  Gallery:

Day #17 – BATTLE – InkTober 2016 ©Carolina Russo

I loved to create Ylia, she is a futuristic kind of superhero- warrior with a nod to the past, she is also a Messenger of “Love and Peace” most of my drawings were accompanied by quotes or Haiku that I wrote. Maybe one day I will publish an illustrated book of @Ylia Adventures! We will see what the future brings! For now I just got the InkTober  2017 “Official Prompt list”  I don’t know yet what I would be creating, I need to brainstorm! This challenge is open to anyone that love sketching with ink pens but for the #worldwatercolorgroup we are free to add a dash of watercolor, I hope that someone of you will join me this year, you don’t have to be drawing every day if you can’t, you can do a drawing every other day, or every few days, or one entry a week! Doesn’t has to be a complicate drawing, it will help you to develop a habit and skills.

Here is the Story of this event: Illustrator Jake Parker is the creator of this great challenge and initiative started in October 2009. Jake  created InkTober as a challenge to improve his inking skills and develop positive drawing habits. It has since grown into a worldwide endeavor with thousands of artists taking on the challenge every year. Here are the 2017 Official Rules:

Jake Parker Official Rules

I am very excited this year to join Jake once again and participate to this great challenge with artists all over the world! Sharing on the Blog and on Instagram @carolinarussoart I really would love to create all the 31 ink drawings but I think I wont have much time this year, because I would be participating also to another challenge event (I will tell you about this later on!) So I will pick all the prompts that inspire me to produce great drawings.

Visit Jake Parker website for more details, videos, inspiration and lots to learn. I exported here the Official prompt list for the month.

The Official 2017 InkTober Prompt List:

InkTober 2017 Official Prompt List

 If you like to join the challenge don’t forget when you post  to always add the hashtags #INKTOBER2017  #INKTOBER  and if you add watercolor hashtag  #worldwatercolorgroup post your ink drawing online on your Blog and/or on Instagram, Facebook, Twitter…add all the tags to any place you share your drawings online!

 

I hope that my friends artists here on WordPress will join this challenge with me, that’s why I made this post early in advance so that you all can get prepared!

Now let’s get paper, inks, watercolor and have fun in October! ❤

Thank You!

New painting release! Mystical Multitude

 

Mystical Multitude – Original Watercolor Graphite ©Carolina Russo


New painting release!  “Mystical Multitude” 

Today post feature the release of my new watercolor-graphite painting having the title of “Mystical Multitude”. This is the finished piece of the work in progress that who is following me on Instagram @carolinarussoart already has seen this painting progressing through my latest posts. I am happy how it turned out and If you missed the stages,  you can see here the pencil sketch where my inspiration and work begin, actually my starting sketch was the face in the center. This time I wanted to do something different and combine two mediums together and the use of different skills in one painting.   I love graphite for the soft tone and shades of grey with the possibility to build up the color with more depth as needed. I felt that would’ve been beautiful combined with the transparency of watercolor using a delicate color palette.

Mystical Multitude – Original Watercolor Graphite ©Carolina Russo

This is the beginning of the watercolor layering stage. I truly enjoyed to create this painting for the variety of expressions in the beautiful faces and for the mixed media technique. I did work for several days on it, there are lots of details and the layering in between watercolors and graphite. The paper I used it is a large size pad it is 9 x 12 inches, approx. 22.9 x 30.5 centimeters.

Painting Meaning

“For this portrait I gave the title “Mystical Multitude” the meaning behind the painting is inspired by how our emotions are flowing together in our reality, how feelings can transport us in many directions and how much we emotionally change. This portrait shows three different faces of women, but in a mystical and dreamy way it represents one person, the same woman in different moments and emotional state of her life, going through, transformation and changes”.

Mystical Multitude – Original Watercolor Graphite ©Carolina Russo

I love the softness and transparency of the watercolors and  I left it as pure watercolor without the ink outline that usually distinguish most of my paintings but using graphite and colored pencils for more definition.

Release of Limited Edition Fine Art Prints only #25 prints of this painting in size 8×10 inches are available for preorder purchase here on my Blog shop Limited Edition Prints

Details about my sketch and watercolor painting:
 I Sketched on a mixed media large sketchbook size 9 x 12 inches and I used Draft/Matic Pencils  #0.3mm, #o.5mm and #0.7mm “Mab Graves Limited Edition” by ALVIN, a Carmine Red Pencil THINEX 425T (Vintage) – I used  French Artists Watercolors  Sennelier  l’Aguarelle and Jane Davenport Magic Wand colored pencils.

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.

Wander In The Abyss – Original Watercolor ©Carolina Russo

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.

New Mermaid – Work in Progress! #MerMay2017

  

Mermaid – WIP Stage 2 Begin Watercoloring – Original Watercolor ©Carolina Russo

– May new watercolor month challenge :  MerMay2017!

This month of May I have several creative projects going on and one of them is that I am participating whenever possible to the #mermay2017 Challenge. I came across this inspiring challenge following artists friends on Instagram! As you know I love mermaids they are fascinating ,and I have painted several which I have reposted for the first few days of this challenge! Today I am sharing my latest and new Mermaid drawing isn’t finish and  still a work in progress. I am already working on stage two “Watercolor”. I am also sharing the pencil sketch that I begin with. This time I decided to do something different and use “Gray Toned Paper” I love toned paper you can create beautiful effects with it! I especially love the white and black ink effect on toned tan and gray paper, but I also like to experiment and I wanted to see how my watercolor style works with this paper. Toned paper is not made for watercolor is a paper for dry media, but it’s not a super thin paper and if you use watercolors you have to find the right balance between color and water, painting more dry than wet. I like it so far and looking forward to see this piece how turn out when I am done! ❤

***A note: excuse if the photos quality in this post isn’t  as my usual.  I am dealing with a problem on my computer that is annoying me a lot and at the moment I am using a backup computer! Windows 10 decided to reboot and stay in Safe Mode and lock me out of my desktop :-((( without option to get to login, is crazy and I am trying to figure out what to do to get off the safe mode, I read that many Windows 10 users had this problem if any of you ever experienced this and solved the problem, please let me know! Hope to get back to normal soon!

Open To Wonder – Original Watercolor ©Carolina Russo


New painting release!  “Open To Wonder” 

Today post feature the release of my new watercolor painting. This is the finished piece and last stage to the work in progress that you have been following from my latest couple of Blog posts. If you missed the stages of the work in progress you can see the initial sketch here and the beginning of watercoloring here.   I enjoyed very much to create this portrait inspired by the “Blythe doll”. I love the softness and transparency of the watercolors and  I left it as pure watercolor without the ink outline that usually distinguish most of my paintings. I finally decided the title and I am happy to say that I took the lovely suggestion of one of you! In my other post I asked you all to suggest a title and help me.  I thank  everyone that did! For this painting I took the lovely suggestion of my dear Blog friend Miriam in her comment she said: “This is really lovely. She looks open to wonder” and yes I love it and recall deeply the meaning of my painting “Open To Wonder”  I think works beautifully. Thank you Miriam!

With this painting today I am joining Charlie at doodlewash for the new May challenge:

– May new watercolor month challenge:  Painting Textures!

Today’s word prompt for the monthly challenge at doodlewash  is  “Flowery”.

This portrait is filled of  “Butterflies and Flowers” the beauty found in nature that make us open to wonder about life and the transformations we go through! this is the meaning behind my painting. The challenge theme is about painting textures my little flowers have some texture.

Details about my sketch and watercolor painting:
 I Sketched on a mixed media large sketchbook size 9 x 11 inches and I used a  Draft/Matic Pencil  0.3mm  Mab Graves Limited Edition by ALVIN, a Carmine Red Pencil THINEX 425T (Vintage) – I used  French Artists Watercolors  Sennelier  l’Aguarelle.
