Day 6 – On The Boardwalk – Original Watercolor ©Carolina Russo

Today painting prompt is “On The Boardwalk” this is a very nice prompt to illustrate. I love the ocean and I always loved a relaxing walk on the boardwalk, feeling the ocean breeze and loose my sight in the horizon looking at the beautiful sky, enjoying the company of the Seagulls and often have them coming really close! My painting remind me these lovely moments!

My Lighthouse painting found home in Scotland!

– Lighthouse (Rhode Island) –

Today I have a nice news to share with you!

My watercolor painting “Lighthouse – Rhode Island” was created last July 2016 during my participation to the first edition of the  World Watercolor Month  a worldwide challenge that did bring together artists from all over the world to create 31 paintings in 31 days. My Lighthouse is actually available in Limited Edition Art Prints on my Etsy Shop Carolina Russo Art  one of prints just Sold recently to a dear friend Whafflemethis part of our Community here on WordPress. I love Lighthouses and seascapes they are so beautiful bring calmness and meditative feelings! When I painted the Original watercolor, I searched for inspiration and I came across beautiful images of “Rhode Island” an US State in New England, lots of lovely views and places. I found over a Google search a beautiful photo  of a lighthouse located near the city of Newport. That was my inspiration for my painting I have posted the photo below for you to see (sorry I don’t know the photographer name to give credit).

WWM Day #22 July 2016 – Lighthouse (Rhode Island) – Original Watercolor ©Carolina Russo

Here is the photo that I have received this morning, the painting is beautifully framed in a cherry wood frame,  looks great in his new home in Scotland. Rich aka wafflemethis recently ordered the art print with the option upon request to have the painting mounted with a matt which I personally prepare. This is an option that I offer for a small difference of price to Limited Edition Prints, so that the print when received is ready to be framed. We decided for a blue matt because  brings out greatly the colors of the painting and match with another “Lighthouse” painting of mine that he previously purchased, and I am sure they look great together.

This is the reference photo I used to create the painting in my vision and signature style.

Details about my watercolor:
watercolor painting is outlined with black ink pens. I used  French Artist grade Watercolors Sennelier, Ink pen Pigma Micron Black #01 and a Pentel Prera fountain pen. Painted over Arches watercolor paper grain fin cold pressed 300g  140lb


Limited Edition Art Prints of this painting are available on my Etsy Shop!

Majestic Ocean – Photo ©Carolina Russo

Hello friends sorry I haven’t post much lately, I have been busy with some painting commissions, fullfilling some orders and organizing my new Etsy Shop. Last week I went to visit the beautiful Ocean it was an great day! Maybe some of you that follow me on Instagram @carolinarussoart already had the opportunity to see these and more of my latest photos. I love the ocean in Winter the colors, the dramatic sky is a wonderful combination. When I went there I took some nice photos there were a beautiful light check my Instagram for more. These days here in California is unusually raining a lot, which is very good for the earth everything around here is now way greener and beautiful! Usually the hills where I go hiking are dry and the vegetation camouflage with the dirt and rocks at this moment it is so green like rarely I have seen, so I went to take some photos there too I will post them here next time. For today enjoy this beautiful ocean’s sunset! And you can also see me in action trying to capture the moment! ❤
