Watercolor – Queen Flower

Queen Flower – Original Watercolor ©CarolinaRusso


Exploring a new idea 

Today I am excited to share with you one of my latest watercolor painting having the title  ” Queen Flower”.
I painted in my traditional signature style in watercolor and ink but this time not on the usual watercolor paper. I came across this 10 inches diameter paper lace doily at home and my first thought was to make a ink drawing on it! I love to explore new artistic and creative ways to paint, testing papers or surfaces and see how watercolor works especially on unusual ones! I am always driven to try new techniques and materials. I have to say that the combination of watercolor and ink pen did work really well without any bleeding through the paper! I am happy and pleased with the outcome! The watercolor looks great on this paper doily, the original painting is lovely and would look great with a floating frame.  I will sure create more paintings on paper doilies in the future.

Day 7:  Enchanted – Yokai
Double Challenge combined prompts #Drawlloweentober2019 
Inktober:  Enchanted
MabsDrawlloweenClub2019:  Yokai

Today drawing is inspired by the Japanese Mythology and Folklore “Yōkai (妖怪, ghost, phantom, strange apparition) are a class of supernatural monsters, spirits, and demons in Japanese folklore. The word yōkai is made up of the kanji for “bewitching; attractive; calamity” and “spectre; apparition; mystery; suspicious” (source WikipediA)
The combination of the two prompts  Enchanted and Yokai is great together! I hope you love my “Kiko the Enchanted Yokai” Her name is Kiko and she is very mysterious! I also wrote an Haiku for this drawing!

Day 6:  Husky – Black Dog
Double Challenge combined prompts #Drawlloweentober2019 
Inktober:  Husky
MabsDrawlloweenClub2019:  Black Dog

Today drawing is a black Husky dog prompts combined greatly! I like to think at a Spirit Animal. I made the drawing in black ink with a touch of watercolor and gold on the moon I think looks pretty nice! I haven’t created yet the quote that goes with it I need to write one and if I do I will post it here.

Inktober 2019 – MabsDrawlloweenClub Day 5: Build – Huntress

Day 5 Build – Huntress ©CarolinaRusso

“Her name is Alpha huntress she builds her own bows with gold, she doesn’t hunts animals instead she loves them but be careful she is so powerful…”

Day 5:  Build – Huntress
Double Challenge combined prompts #Drawlloweentober2019 
Inktober:  Build
MabsDrawlloweenClub2019:  Huntress

Day 5  drawing took long time to finish it! Sorry I am posting here on the Blog a day late, yesterday I was only able to post it on Instagram! It took me a good time brainstorming to come up with an original idea that will combine the two prompts Build and Huntress nicely and not showing just my huntress building her bows but she carries two bows the bigger one symbolize that she is also a bowyer  a craftsman who makes bows and an huntress in the drawing she is trying out her bows . The fine line work and all the details takes patience and time I am not rushing this series, each drawing has my heart and soul and I want it to be a beautiful series.

I used mostly brown ink, black ink on the bigger bow and arrow and a touch of gold no watercolor this time! I love the precision and cleaness and I decided to do not add color!

❤ Details about my drawings: Supplies used for my Ink drawing ink pens used COPIC Multiliner Black ink #03 and 05, Micron dark red ink #, brown #003. Fountain Pen Pilot Prera Fine Nib. Alvin Draft/Matic pencil #03 Limited Edition Pink Mab Graves.  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 4:  Freeze – Candelabra
Double Challenge combined prompts #Drawlloweentober2019 
Inktober:  Freeze
MabsDrawlloweenClub2019:  Canelabra

Today drawing is ethereal and surrealistic it took long time to finish it! There is lots of  detail work in these drawings especially my latest three! Today I have used black and white inks! It was challenging to combine prompts in a interesting and original way and I am very happy with what I did!  Today I used black and white inks and watercolor for my “Candelabra lady” almost a kind of Snow Queen in the freezing snow wearing candles on her shoulders a icicle crown and a forest dress 🖤❄️❄️❄️🖤 I added one of my older quotes that in my opinion fits pretty well with the drawing. I hope you like it!

Inktober 2019 – MabsDrawlloweenClub Day 3: Bait – Bat

Day 3 Bait – Bat ©CarolinaRusso

“ The wind is blowing vibrations at dusk in a skirt of leaves I feed bats  “ – ©️CarolinaRusso

 

Day 3:  Bait – Bat
Double Challenge combined prompts #Drawlloweentober2019 
Inktober:  Bait
MabsDrawlloweenClub2019:  Bat

Today drawing is another scene with soft color tones and a hint of Victorian – Gothic style in brown ink I am liking drawing these! prompts are Bait an Bat and  I wanted to create something more ethereal than creepy! So the girl in my drawing is a nature and bat lover she love to feed the bats at dusk wearing a skirt made of leaves, she is able to communicate with bats, they are spirit animals and they symbolize free spirit trusting in vibrations and inner guidance. They are special and beautiful creatures.
