Hello everyone I hope that you all are enjoying Spring!
Today I have a nice announcement to do…

time has arrived and today I am very happy to post again about one of my latest collaboration and special commission done during the past months. This has been a great and interesting project that I have been working on!
During last Summer I was contacted by British Author  MJ Mallon for the creation of some character illustrations for her new book.   We have had a wonderful collaboration developed in the coming soon publication of the book in paperback edition, including my character illustrations.  MJ Mallon is a novel’s writer and a dear  friend in our Blog-World Community. To get to know more about her,  please  visit her Blog at MJ Mallon Author!

Today is also the start of MJ  blog tour for the release of her  paperback – The Curse of Time Book One Bloodstone. There will be a celebration on her blog, everyone is invited!
This post is the  first stop  on the #ABRSC tour, other blogs will follow in the next coming days.

The beautiful book  is a fantasy novel for young adults, inspired by supernatural, magic and paranormal. Many themes are touched into the intriguing and captivating story of Amelina Scott, a fifteen years old girl that lives in Cambridge,  England. With some magic help, Amelina discovers the truth of a shocking curse that destroyed her family happiness. If you like magic and supernatural you would love this novel. This is the first book and according to author MJ Mallon it would be a sequel and so a series.

The title is “The Curse Of Time” #1 Bloodstone  first published as Kindle Edition “Not Illustrated” launched August 2017.

Today I am very  happy to announce that the book would be released soon  in paperback edition during April 2018. I have created the Illustrations of two characters “Esme and the Creature Eruterac” I loved to create these watercolor paintings as portraits of the intriguing characters, MJ described them to me so well that I was able to bring them alive on paper.  I am so honored and very happy that my illustrations are included in black and white into the paperback edition, it is a great accomplishment and means a lot to me. This year you will see other great collaborations and very interesting projects that I am working on. Keep following!

Inktober – MabsDrawlloweenClub Day 6: Black Lagoon – Sword

Day #6: Black Lagoon – Sword

– Black Lagoon . Sword –
Day #6 MabsDrawlloweenClub – InkTober 2017

Day #6  Entry double challenges Mabsdrawlloweenclub and Inktober is for the prompts “Black Lagoon and Sword

Today painting is mainly inspired by the prompt from Mabsdrawlloweenclub which is “Black Lagoon”  referred to Creature from the Black Lagoon a 1954 American black-and-white 3D monster horror film I honestly had to do my researches to know more about this old movie. I have then created my own character that you see in my painting. And the prompt for Inktober is Sword so I had to find a way to add a sword so I had my character carry it which I think did work out great for the combination of the two promps!


Details about my paintings:
 My Ink drawing is outlined with ink pens. Pentel Pocket Brush black ink.  Ink pens used COPIC Multiliner Black ink #03 and 05 . A Alvin Draft/Matic #03 Limited Edition Pink Mab Graves Pencil. A dash of watercolor  I used  French Artists Watercolors  Sennelier  l’Aguarelle,  Pentel Aqua Brush – I painted on Bee Paper for watercolor 140lb, 100% cotton, cold pressed, size 6×9 inches .

Day #6: Black Lagoon – Sword – Supplies Used

Today I wanted to post more photos, this one is to show you all my supplies for today painting! What you see in the picture it is everything I have used 3 different size and colors of Micron pens: Dark red 0.5 – Brown 0.1 – Black 0.5 – Sakura White Jelly Roll – Pilot Turquoise Precise V5 extra fine – Sennellier watercolors, Alvin Draftmatic pencil.

Day #6: Black Lagoon – Sword – Pencil Sketch

This is the photo of my starting pencil sketch just, that you can see a little of how my drawing progressed and turned in a watercolor, outlined ink painting! I hope that you enjoy to see this daily challenges and how prompts can inspire to create paintings that you never thought about it!
My first three paintings of this series are listed as Limited Edition Prints in two sizes on my Etsy Shop!

New Release: Esme – Bringing alive a character with a painting! Collaboration with Author MJ Mallon

Esme And The Mirror -Original Watercolor Painting by ©Carolina Russo – Portrait of Esme Inspired by the Book – “The Curse Of Time” #1 Bloodstone by Author MJ Mallon

Today I am happy to post about one of my latest collaboration and commission done during the month of August.
I have collaborated with British Author Marjorie J Mallon,  she is a novel’s writer and  a friend in our community here on WordPress.

She Blogs at MJ Mallon Author!

I always love to write the story behind the scene of  my paintings. A while back I was contacted by MJ, she is one of my lovely long time followers from overseas. She loves my Art and followed my World Watercolor Month Collection, created in July, a challenge featuring 31 paintings in 31 days. MJ was touched by one of my paintings, inspiring the coming idea. Explained in her message to me indicating that her new book Kindle Edition “The Curse Of Time” #1 Bloodstone was close to be launched on August 26, (yes it is already happened!) and that she would’ve loved to collaborate with me, asking if I could create a painting for her. A portrait to illustrate her fiction character “Esme” and a digital image to be able to share it online! The idea was very exciting to me, I love book illustrations and of course, I wanted to create this special portrait.  MJ gave me some interesting details about Esme, and enough was said that I let soon my creativity fly. I prepared a pencil sketch with my vision, MJ approved and I was ready to paint and bring the character alive. What a beautiful opportunity for both of us to collaborate while we are in two different countries, she is in UK and I am in US this is one side of the beauty of Blogging! Great connections can be made opening the doors of possibilities. I Blog from three years now and I had amazing connections and experiences. During this year is happened to me several times to collaborate and I love it.

While having our communications MJ gave me some interesting information and detail about what was important for her to showcase  in my painting.  Esme has long blond hair, the mirror, a face reflection, tears, a pink quartz crystal, a clock, and sunflowers + few more detail that I wont reveal to do not spoil her book! Not much I needed, to let my creativity and vision of Esme taking  shape. I had my vision and MJ loved it! As you can see on my painting I added all the elements she gave me ” Esme, the crystal and  the sunflowers are in foreground painted in a light delicate watercolor color palette that is in  contrast with the images in the dark background, the clock and the mirror that are representing the unknown and the darkness.

I loved to create this intriguing painting which I gave the title “Esme And The Mirror”  Esme is the name of one of the main characters in the book.  MJ mentioned in one of her Blog posts this quote: “The tears in her eyes convey her sadness but the golden hair of the mysterious girl facing her (no spoilers!) is bright and vibrant, suggesting hope.”  What a great message isn’t it? Well my painting represent Light and Darkness, Sadness and Hope.

Thank you so much MJ  for supporting my art with our collaboration and commission! I had the opportunity to create this beautiful inspiring Portrait for you bringing alive your intriguing character Esme and have my Art connected with you and your new book! “The Curse Of Time” #1 Bloodstone to know more about it give MJ a visit on her Blog this is the link to her Book Launch Party Post

Painting Release: The image of my painting isn’t included inside the book, but I am having a “New Release” here now!

Artist all over the world are giving their tribute. I made my portrait in my style but something a little different from my usual, it has the Surrealist touch, I painted inspired by her life story and by several of her original paintings like ” Self-Portrait With Bonito -1941″, “The Broken Column -1944”, “The Deer Wondered – 1946″, ”  Elements like flowers, animals, arrows and internal body parts are often appearing in her paintings as her creative and unique way of artistic expression.

Frida Kahlo mostly painted self portraits one of her famous quotes says: “I paint self-portraits because I am so often alone, because I am the person I know best”

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.

 

Mystical Multitude – Original Watercolor Graphite ©Carolina Russo

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.
