Frida Kahlo Tribute Portrait

– Frida Kahlo Portrait  –

 

Frida Kahlo – Watercolor Painting ©CarolinaRusso

Hello friends,
welcome to a warm August!

My post today is the official release of my new painting dedicated to historic Surrealist artist  “Frida Kahlo” the month of July celebrate the anniversaries of her Birthday and end of her life,  (6 July 1907 – 13 July 1954) she was a Mexican painter recognized as one of the most revolutionary Latin American artist, best known for her bright color paintings and especially for her self-portraits. She made many portraits telling her own life story dramatically painted. Her paintings were inspired by her culture using symbolism and mythology in her surrealistic style inspired by the nature and artifacts of her native country Mexico. She is also one of the most painted artist around the world, I have seen tribute paintings of her in any creative style and medium. Artists worldwide love to recreate her bold character identified by her eyebrows recon as unibrow iconic shape. This is my second painting dedicated to her. I made my first one two years ago in July 2017 it was a half figure of her inspired by some of her own famous paintings you can see my painting here.

This July 2019 I painted a tribute portrait in my style watercolor and ink which portrays her face with the typical braided hair up do ornate by colorful rose flowers, she wore flowers in her hair most of the time and that’s how she appear in most of the existing photos throughout her life. I am happy overall with this painting especially with the expression I was able to capture in her eyes.

The Moth I painted with black ink and gold is just symbolic in a good way. I love moths and I just thought it will complete this tribute portrait to Frida as you see the Moth has a cross on her chest as symbol of “Faith” and two heart shape in her wings they symbolize “Love” the gold means  “Light”. There isn’t any superstitious or dark meanings behind my moth. Moths are “Nocturnal Spirit Animal” they are attracted to light and their meaning resonates with truth, faith and determination you can see a little video I took of this painting to show the shiny gold and I posted on my Instagram!

Sadly Frida Kahlo discovered the art of painting while in bed severely injured from a terrible accident. To take her mind away from the pain and to find a way to pass time she discovered her art and started paint self-portraits one of her famous quotes says: “I paint self-portraits because I am so often alone, because I am the person I know best” there are many of her own quotes which her words clearly describe her character like this one “Feet, what do I need you for when I have wings to fly?” Or “I never paint dreams or nightmares. I paint my own reality”  and how she describe herself  “I am not sick. I am broken. But I am happy to be alive as long as I can paint” – Frida Khalo


Details about my watercolor painting:
 My watercolors is outlined with black and white ink pens. I used  French Artists Watercolors  Sennelier  l’Aguarelle,  Ink pens used COPIC Multiliner Black ink #03. A Alvin Draft/Matic  pencil #03.  Pentel Aqua Brush – I painted on Bee Paper for watercolor 140lb, 100% cotton, cold pressed, size 6×9 inches. Enhanced with gold ink.
