A Wild Sunflower #WorldWatercolorGroup

The Season is changing and so the colors in nature we are getting close to the Autumnal equinox  2016, which would be on September 22.
The Fall season will bring us new enjoyable things of different kinds during the transition from Summer to Winter. Here in California I wont feel much that transition which I would love it!
Yesterday I was inspired to paint a Sunflower thinking to the beautiful nature in the wilderness. I wanted to paint in autumnal colors and add some character to the composition.
I painted the sunflower directly with the watercolors without trace it with pencil before. I loved letting the water flow and blend with the colors. This time I also wanted to create a different effect leaving some of the leafs in white and just outline them with the black ink pen, the white leafs are the only thing that I traced in pencil I really like how it turned out and I hope that you do too let me know your impressions! ❤

White Dove #DrawABirdDay #WorldWatercolorGroup

White Dove – Original Watercolor © Carolina Russo

Today I like to share with you my new watercolor, I made it last night before go to bed and it made me happy. I love the white Dove is such a beautiful bird and it became a great symbol of love and peace. It is rare to see them but each time I see one flying in the sky I stop everything just to admire her beauty and feelings that she brings. Yesterday I was pinning on my boards on Pinterest and I came across a lovely photo of a Dove that inspired me to paint as soon I saw it. I had that urge to paint it right at that moment! If you paint or sketch or also if you write or create any kind of things then you know what that feeling is and means, it was just late before go to bed not really a time to paint but I didn’t wanted to miss that  magic moment of inspiration that strike you unexpected so I did! I actually made it pretty quickly and I like it 😉 there is a beautiful quote that I want to share with you today and is from an Italian artist from Tuscany he was trained under the influence of  Giotto is part of the Art history, long time ago we are talking of the year 1390! Is dear to me because is from an artist  that contribute to the beautiful art in my native country Italy. But no matter the long time passed the words of this artist are very inspiring and motivating today! I wrote this quote on the first page of one of my sketchbooks I can read it all the time and will keep motivate and inspiring me.

“DAY AFTER DAY
NEVER FAIL TO DRAW SOMETHING
WHICH, HOWEVER LITTLE IT MAY BE,
WILL YET IN THE END BE MUCH”

Cennino Cennini
c. 1390

Poets For Peace

Peaceful Sunset -
Peaceful Sunset © Carolina Russo

This is my submission for #PoetsForPeace

PEACE

a precious word I have been thought
from the day I was born

a word made of many words
a word made of many colors
a word made of many thoughts

a word to be shared

a word that rhyme with love
and acceptance

find harmony inside yourself
to walk peacefully during your life path
with enlightenment

love yourself to love one another
open your mind to freedom
and maintain it possible in this world.

©Carolina Russo
