New painting release! Mystical Multitude

 

Mystical Multitude – Original Watercolor Graphite ©Carolina Russo


New painting release!  “Mystical Multitude” 

Today post feature the release of my new watercolor-graphite painting having the title of “Mystical Multitude”. This is the finished piece of the work in progress that who is following me on Instagram @carolinarussoart already has seen this painting progressing through my latest posts. I am happy how it turned out and If you missed the stages,  you can see here the pencil sketch where my inspiration and work begin, actually my starting sketch was the face in the center. This time I wanted to do something different and combine two mediums together and the use of different skills in one painting.   I love graphite for the soft tone and shades of grey with the possibility to build up the color with more depth as needed. I felt that would’ve been beautiful combined with the transparency of watercolor using a delicate color palette.

This is the beginning of the watercolor layering stage. I truly enjoyed to create this painting for the variety of expressions in the beautiful faces and for the mixed media technique. I did work for several days on it, there are lots of details and the layering in between watercolors and graphite. The paper I used it is a large size pad it is 9 x 12 inches, approx. 22.9 x 30.5 centimeters.

Painting Meaning

“For this portrait I gave the title “Mystical Multitude” the meaning behind the painting is inspired by how our emotions are flowing together in our reality, how feelings can transport us in many directions and how much we emotionally change. This portrait shows three different faces of women, but in a mystical and dreamy way it represents one person, the same woman in different moments and emotional state of her life, going through, transformation and changes”.

Mystical Multitude – Original Watercolor Graphite ©Carolina Russo

I love the softness and transparency of the watercolors and  I left it as pure watercolor without the ink outline that usually distinguish most of my paintings but using graphite and colored pencils for more definition.

Release of Limited Edition Fine Art Prints only #25 prints of this painting in size 8×10 inches are available for preorder purchase here on my Blog shop Limited Edition Prints

Details about my sketch and watercolor painting:
 I Sketched on a mixed media large sketchbook size 9 x 12 inches and I used Draft/Matic Pencils  #0.3mm, #o.5mm and #0.7mm “Mab Graves Limited Edition” by ALVIN, a Carmine Red Pencil THINEX 425T (Vintage) – I used  French Artists Watercolors  Sennelier  l’Aguarelle and Jane Davenport Magic Wand colored pencils.

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.

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! 😉
