Into The Deep Sea – Digital Art

Into The Deep Sea – Digital Art watercolor ©Carolina Russo

Hello everyone I hope the New Year found you all well!

After I have painted daily for last 31 days and met my Challenge I wanted to take a short break to recharge but as you know I love to experiment new ways in my creativity and I love Digital Art so when I leave my brushes to rest, I love to work in digital. Today I wanted to share with you one of my latest Digital Art painting I made it yesterday. This digital painting is created out of the fusion of two of my original watercolor paintings that I made awhile ago, some of you may remember this Mermaid I painted in July Day 17  for #The WorldWatercolorMonth  I also used another one of my paintings created in July month which is this one July Day 30 Fish and Bubbles

As you can see from my two paintings I have created one new. I gave it more color and depth and give it the feeling that the mermaid is under water! I think this digital watercolor turned out really nice I love the colors, shades and lighting that I was able to obtain. I did print it out on heavy weight watercolor paper just like my paintings and it looks fantastic! But this is my opinion! 🙂 What do you think? I really would like to know your insight!

Details about my original watercolor paintings:
 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  Pigma Micron Black ink #02 and a black ink  Pilot Prera fountain pen fine nib .  I painted on a large  8.5 x 11 inches  sketchbook.

Digital Art: my original watercolor paintings are edited with the latest version of Photoshop and other software to create the final digital painting.

❤ This painting is available now in Limited Edition and can be Pre-Ordered here for a limited time!
For this first Release I will only make #10 Fine Art Prints in size 8×10 inches!

Title of the print is “ Into The Deep Sea

If you like it don’t miss it!

For order and all the info price etc…go to my  > Shop Art Prints Page

 

Have a wonderful day or night!

Thank You!

Thank You!

Digital Art Portraits Music Collection – The Twilight Sad –

Digital Art  Portraits MUSIC Collection

– THE TWILIGHT SAD –

Today I am sharing with you my project and artwork a new Digital Portrait!

This time I am starting a new Collection of Portraits dedicated to the world of  “MUSIC” and Artists. I loved to create this portrait very much,  because is inspired and dedicated to my favorite nowadays band from Scotland “The Twilight Sad” and to their great and unique music. This year The Twilight Sad had an amazing and successful North American Tour as the opening band chosen by the iconic “The Cure” for this full-fledged 2016 World Tour together. In October they will be back on stage with The Cure Touring around Europe for the final dates of the Tour.  I attended one of the fantastic concerts last May. I have seen them in Los Angeles at The Hollywood Bowl in one of the three sold out shows, it was an amazing and wonderful concert that I never wanted to miss. If you haven’t you can read my detailed Blog Post here.

Details about my Digital Portrait

For this portrait I loved to use the beautiful photos of International Live Music Photographer, “Mauro Melis”, his work is stunning! He had the opportunity to photograph many amazing bands during the years, creating beautiful memories throughout his photography. And I am honored that he let me use his photos for create my artwork this digital portrait. I used three images of The Twilight Sad performing during two dates of the North American Tour. These below are the original photos I used before my digital intervention and creation.

Drummer - Mark Devine - Concert May 17, 2016 - El Paso Texas

I love to create these ethereal digital Portraits. They  are  my evolving  idea and concept to combining images and telling a story in the form of Visual-Art. Each photo has a meaning behind it and tell the Portrait story. During my creative process I am very selective of which photo I use and I spend lots of time researching for the right ones, with the right tones of colors, right  lighting and more details to look at it. This portrait is create with three photos but in my experience during my artistic journey I have made images with 10 and more photos. The process of creating is complex and introspective there is a lots of work and lots of myself in each final image.   I am happy the way this portrait turned out and I plan to create more of them for the Music Collection. For now The Twilight Sad are my shining stars on this special portrait!

You can see and read more of my Digital Portraits visiting my other artistic Collection “When Nature Meets Humans”

I hope that you like my Digital Art and that you will share your impressions on this portrait!
A special thanks goes to The Twilight Sad with my best wishes for their European Tour dates and a great thank you to Mauro Melis for his stunning photography and his kindness to me.
