This post is for the Daily Post Weekly Photo Challenge, the theme for this week is “Liquid”share a photo of liquid in whatever state, shape, or color you happen to capture it in. You can go as big as the ocean or as small as a teardrop, as clear as vodka or as opaque as milk.
Here is mine, I love the reflection of the water and the lighting in this Japanese pond enlivened by the beautiful and colorful Koi fishes. I took this photo awhile ago and it also inspired me to create one of my watercolor paintings with the title “Girl With Koi” available as Limited Edition Signed Print on my Etsy Shop.
– 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 .
Today I wanted to post more photos, this one is to show you all my supplies for today painting!

This is one of my Jewelry creations, it is a necklace part of my Tribal Collection of Jewelry Designs.
I love to create unusual jewelry, with uncommon shapes and style, reminding the Tribal Talismans.
I named this necklace “Love and Clarity” because some of the beautiful gemstones meanings.
Positive energies are loaded in the natural gemstones and crystals as components of this organic necklace.
This necklace feature wire-work wrapped around the gemstones and to the suede adjustable leather cord.
There is a sliding Turquoise Centerpiece that allow to wear the necklace in different ways just moving it.
A sophisticated accent to the primitive Tribal look is given from the beautiful variety of gemstones –
Rose Quartz Beauty and Love – Blue Quartz Harmony and Clarity – Agate Strength and Acceptance – Mother of Pearl Protective and Calming –
Crystal Amplifies – Turquoise Courage and Protection.
You can see it on me, I have one for myself!
I wore it when I had a meet up with some of my dearest Bloggers friends here on WordPress as you can see,
the necklace has a unique look that can change moving the Turquoise center piece up and down can turn in a choker or in an asymmetrical necklace.
More similar designs would be created and added time to time to this beautiful collection, so far there are three designs, this is the second.
The first one was this the “Strength And Harmony” necklace,
and there is also a third one part of this collection the latest created is the necklace “Love and Piece”.
And the story will go on….

tomorrow is last day of Charlie’s February Adventure and challenge, this month I only have joined few days because I have been working on commissions. Today prompt list says “FEATHERS” and I am going to join doodlewash
I love feathers their lightness and their beautiful colors that distinguish the beauty of birds. A feather inspire in so many ways not just for a painting and illustrations often are beautiful subjects for photography or poetry. I like to collect feathers that I find lost in nature, there is always something special about them.
