Today painting is about a portrait that I am working on. What you see is a work in progress. That’s why I only posted a small section of the face just to anticipate what I am working on. This is a portrait inspired by the words of a beautiful song. I will post it when is completed and I will add the words that inspired me. The portrait Is in black and white and gray, no colors, another limited palette between wash and ink.
Today I like to debut here and introduce you my latest watercolor painting the title is “Night And Day” she is another creature from my “Mystic World Collection” I also wrote a poem to tell her beautiful story.
Night And Day
When the sun rise
she emits powerful rays of sunshine,
joy and merriment
sending warm feelings of love through the light
and a breeze
move the petals of a sunflower sending sunshine to the world.
When is twilight
she brings glowing light from the sky when
her other half is below the horizon
her rays of sunshine become refraction and scattering
she emits rays of love into a universal light
illuminating the Earth until dusk
she blows stars in the wind welcoming the night.

Today I like to introduce you my latest watercolor painting and creation she is Azur a creature from a Mystic World, she comes from a place where everything is beautiful and peaceful like a dream. A place of art where creativity and fantasy lead the way to a life of freedom and happiness. Azur beside to be alive in a watercolor painting she could be the main character in an illustrated story or a beautiful character in a computer game or more… The beautiful part is… that she can be whatever I create her to be! 😉
I often enjoy to paint completely out schemes and let my creativity flow like a river while holding my brushes and pens. I enjoy to create whimsical and ethereal faces or figures that seems to come out of a fairytale or dreamy world bringing happiness and joy.
This is Azur’s Mystic Portrait next would be nice to see her in full figure! What do you think? I love your comments ❤

Today is time for another digital creation that I want to share with you, it’s a Portrait added to this Concept-Collection. This is Portrait #3 Silver Wave.
This is a black and white portrait created with black and white photos only for a monochrome effect, focusing on lighting and transparency. While editing and creating this portrait I was able to archive a magical golden lighting effect giving beautiful shades, it is lovely how it turned out I am very pleased and happy with it. This was a great experiment to work on.
I like to continually evolve with my Art and creativity which I love to express with different mediums. From years I love to work in Digital finding new ways of visualize and learn while experimenting. I like to work with photos, manipulating images of any kind. I often post my Digital Art . I made a new gallery for the “When Nature Meets Humans Portraits Collection” you can see and read all about this great concept here. When I am not working on my Jewelry Designs, and when I am not holding a pencil or a brush watercolor painting or sketching, I love to go Digital is an extension of my art which I love to work with very much and in this case Photoshop is my creative ally. I am using Photoshop from about 15 years, for me there are not other software to really compare with, I am so amazed all the time of what I am able to create with it that motivate and inspire me to create and experiment more and more.
I am very excited and inspired to keep working on this concept created as an experimental and evolving Collection of Artistic and one of a kind Digital Portraits this is also part of my personal creative and artistic growth and evolution. Thanks to all of you for leaving me your feedbacks and comments let me know what you think. I really appreciate all the encouragements and insights. This portrait it is the #3 of this Digital Art Collection, so far by now I created six portraits.
The story for this one starts with the title I gave “Silver Wave” because the reflection of the water combined with the light and the grays and white tones. I also feel that the portrait emits messages of peace and calm feelings and strength at the same time, it represent the image of a strong woman who is illuminated by rays of kindness and love with a sense of inner peace, purity and happiness.
I came up with this idea to mix nature with humans and create a unique and very different kind of portraits…let’s say very unusual portraits that tell a story, each one I created has their own story and meanings, they are filled with all my experience, art and soul into it.
If you’re interested in purchase a custom and unique portrait like this one using your own personal photos, I can create your personal and unique story with a custom Digital Art Portrait, for more info and details please contact me.
As always thank you I love to know your opinion and I appreciate your feedback!
