Today post is about one of my latest commission work!

I loved to create this painting title “Dragons and Castles”  it was very inspiring and it goes to another kind and talented Fantasy Author, she is part of our Community her Blog is A.S.Akkalon  I am sure some of you came across her Blog already!

Life is always a surprise!

Awhile ago I made the painting “Katie The Writer”   you that follow my Blog maybe remember that post! And because a kind comment left me then, I got to know better Alecia aka A.S.Akkalon she left me a very nice comment telling me how much she loved my painting for Katie and the story behind it!

I responded to her comment:  “Thank you very much in a way I am sure you can relate with it! You’re a writer I could’have portrait you with castle and dragon 😉 Thank you for stopping by my Blog and I love your comment!” ❤

The comments are what did bring us closer together and the beautiful surprise of her decision to custom order to me this painting. A Fantasy Portrait representing her with her cat and what she love to write about it in her fantasy stories. So a Dragon and a Castle were a must to paint! As part of my creative process we started to exchange emails and talk about her own idea and my vision of the painting and here there is the beautiful and interesting outcome! Alecia purchased the Original Watercolor Painting and a digital image to use on her Blog. At this moment her painting is in the hands of the postal service, is in transit going overseas all the way to beautiful  New Zealand! Today Alecia couldn’t wait to receive the “Original” and she used the digital image to share a post about it, you can read it here it is “A dragon, a castle and an audiobook”  visit her Blog there are lots of good and fun reading!

Thank you Alecia so much for supporting my art with your commission and for the opportunity to create this painting for you and have my Art in another beautiful part of the world!

I hope that you all enjoyed reading this post and to know more about behind the scenes of my paintings!

NOISE Day #2 – #INKTOBER2016

Day 2: NOISE
Ylia love music, she can play every instrument that she will touch, but nothing will beat her loved electric guitar. The best sound and the best noise of the day is when she let go everything playing in a solo while her notes echoing in the air.

Her name is ©Ylia and she is the Character I created for this InkTober 2016

Day #2 NOISE – InkTober 2016 ©Carolina Russo

Today I loved to create Day 2 “Noise” I wanted to interpret the word noise in a way pleasant giving to my character a great guitar to play. Was great to see  Ylia turn alive in a different situation than yesterday it would be amazing in end to see all the 31 drawings.

Actually “Noise music is a category of music that is characterized by the expressive use of noise within a musical context. This type of music tends to challenge the distinction that is made in conventional musical practices between musical and non-musical sound“.

Night And Day – Original Watercolor  ©Carolina Russo

 

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 ❤
