– April new watercolor month challenge:  Spring Things

Today’s word prompt for the monthly challenge at doodlewash  is  “Hummingbird”.

I see beautiful hummingbirds green color with red head, I see them daily flying around the backyard and posing on flowers and tree’s  branches! They are so tiny like two inches and they fly super fast! They make a very cute sound. Today my painting portrays a colorful hummingbird. I made this painting without my usual ink outlines but just watercolor. Today  I mean tomorrow is #DrawABirdDay I think that in our #worldwatercolorgroup we still celebrating this each 8th of the month, if we still do my Hummingbird join that event too. ❤

Details about my watercolors:
 watercolors usually are outlined with black and white ink pens. I used  French Artists Watercolors  Sennelier  l’Aguarelle,  Ink pens used  Pigma Micron Black ink #02 and a black ink  Pilot Prera fountain pen fine nib. I painted on Bee Paper for watercolor 140lb, 100% cotton, cold pressed, size 6×9 inches .

Nest – #WorldWatercolorGroup

   

Nest – Original Watercolor ©CarolinaRusso


– April new watercolor month challenge:  Spring Things!

Yesterday prompt list for the monthly challenge at doodlewash was  “NEST”  I am joining in this month whenever is possible.

Yesterday prompt was “Nest”  sorry I have posted this late for yesterday but is good for today.  Also if my day was busy, I am happy I managed to paint. I love “Nests” I think they are so precious and beautiful almost magical when it happens to came across one. I painted an illustration of a traditional nest but with blue eggs.

I have read some interesting facts about blue eggs: “The eastern bluebird lays the smallest blue egg – approximately 4/5 of an inch – of all the songbirds that lay blue eggs. The eggs of western and mountain bluebirds are slightly larger than the eastern bluebirds, but smaller than the eggs of robins, blue jays, starlings, thrushes and catbirds.” (Source:  sialis.org)

Details about my watercolors:
 watercolors are outlined with black, white pens. I used  French Artists Watercolors  Sennelier  l’Aguarelle,  Ink pens used  Pigma Micron Black and Dark Red ink #02 and a black ink  Pilot Prera fountain pen fine nib. Traced with a vintage Thinex Carmine Red 425T pencil. I painted on a mixed media sketckbook.

Umbrella – #WorldWatercolorGroup

Umbrella – Original Watercolor ©CarolinaRusso

   
– April new watercolor month challenge:  Spring Things!

Today prompt list for the monthly challenge at doodlewash is  “UMBRELLA”  I am joining in this month whenever is possible.

Today the prompt in Charlie list is “Umbrella” I painted an illustration of a traditional happy walk under the rain. I love to ear the sound of rain while I am about to sleep it is very calming, I also love the smell of the rain on the grass or near the ocean. I grow up in Italy where rains often during Winter time and I quite miss it now, because here where I live in California, the rain is like an event when it happens! But I have to say that this past month we have been pretty lucky to enjoy some days of good rain that turned the surrounding hills in a beautiful intense green color which is rare to see!

Details about my watercolors:
 watercolors are outlined with black, whithe and dark red pens. I used  French Artists Watercolors  Sennelier  l’Aguarelle,  Ink pens used  Pigma Micron Black and Dark Red ink #02 and a black ink  Pilot Prera fountain pen fine nib. I painted on a mixed media sketckbook.

Butterfly – #WorldWatercolorGroup

– April new watercolor month challenge:  Spring Things!

Today prompt list for the monthly challenge at doodlewash is  “BUTTERFLY”  I am joining in this month whenever is possible.

Today the prompt Butterfly couldn’t be missed!  I love butterflies so much that I have a tattoo with a Monarch on my foot.  The butterfly has elegance, beauty and gorgeous colors they are just stunning and they have a beautiful meaning:
Butterflies are deep and powerful representations of life. Many cultures associate the butterfly with our souls. The Christian religion sees the butterfly as a symbol of resurrection. Around the world, people view the butterfly as representing endurance, change, hope, and life” ( Source gardenswithwings.com)
Today painting is a quick one that I sketched very fast. I had no much time and I am working in between several work in progress paintings, so I am glad I was able to manage my first watercolor of the month.

Details about my watercolors:
 watercolors are outlined with black pens. I used  French Artists Watercolors  Sennelier  l’Aguarelle,  Ink pens used  Pigma Micron Black ink #02 and a black ink  Pilot Prera fountain pen fine nib. I painted on a mixed media sketckbook.

Spring a Blythe Inspired Art Portrait

Spring – Original Watercolor ©CarolinaRusso

       
 Happy St. Patick’s Day!

Today My watercolor painting is the portrait of “Spring” a lovely and delicate creature, she has lovely long green hair braided with flowers and beautiful intense big blue eyes. I am inspired by the unique and beautiful Art Dolls custom-made for collectors. Better known as “Blythe Dolls” I love to paint and drawing Blythe dolls they are really pretty and one of the characteristics is that they have an over sized head and large beautiful eyes over a smaller body which make them a great subject for Pop Surrealism Art. Blythe dolls from years acquired a cult following of collectors, photographers and artists around the world. It’s always a joy to paint a portrait inspired, I came across lately to other artists following this inspiration and it is amazing that Blythe dolls acquired a cult following of collectors and eventually, photographers and artists around the world, if you are not so familiar with this you can read more about it here on Wikipedia.

My painting portrays an image of the coming Spring Season with her vibrant green hair and fresh flowers she is just there in the grass enjoying the beauty of a sunny day and I think she is also perfect to celebrate St. Patrick’s Day I wish to all of you a great one!

Details about my watercolors:
 This watercolor painting is outlined with black and white ink pens. I used  French Artists Watercolors  Sennelier,   Ink pens used are a black ink  Pilot Prera fountain pen fine nib  and a COPIC Multiliner #00.3 and Pigma Micron #05.  I painted on a  8 x 11 inches mixed media sketchbook.


This watercolor painting is available for Pre-Order in Limited Edition here on the Blog Art Prints   or on my Etsy Shop
Custom Portraits like this one, are also available for Commission Contact me for details.

Warm – #WorldWatercolorGroup

     

Warm – Original Watercolor ©Carolina Russo


– March Challenge:  Paint What You Love!

Today prompt list for the monthly challenge at doodlewash is  “WARM”  I am joining in.

Today the word warm made me think at many of you out there that still have snow lately (you know I love snow!)  I have seen via social media lots of snow here in US, in other States than where I am, which is sunny and a little bit too much warm now for the season, over  80 degree feels like Summer during day time, especially this week. The weather has been little crazy playing hot and cool after the needed rain we had two weeks ago. Seems next week we will cool down!
Today painting is more of a cute illustration and is inspired by the latest snow, and my little girl need to keep warm! This is a quick one that I sketched very fast on my Hobonichi Planner!

I used  French Artists Watercolors  Sennelier  l’Aguarelle 12 demi-godets half-pans travel metal box  Ink pens used  Pigma Micron Black ink #02 and a black ink  Pilot Prera fountain pen fine nib. I painted on a Hobonichi Planner (Japan) over Tomoe River paper a very thin, lightweight paper great for fountain pens and not so wet watercolors.
