– 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!

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.

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!
