The Season is changing the Autumnal Equinox 2018 is here HAPPY FALL everyone!
Let’s celebrate this beautiful Season ❤
I leave you with my Wild Sunflower watercolor painting I made time ago. 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! ❤
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 Owls I find them to be so beautiful there are many species and rare ones. Time ago I was pinning on my boards on Pinterest and I came across this amazing photo of a blue eyed half red Owl I don’t know what species is and if isn’t an edited photo I’ve heard that people do edit animals photos to change their colors, but whatever it is it looks amazingly beautiful and that inspired me to paint as soon I have seen it weeks ago. Last night finally I painted him thinking that today following our Community tradition here in our circle of friends artists it is the 8th of the month is #DrawABirdDay . Here below I will add the original photo that inspired my painting for you all to see this beauty!
Today I am also happy to join my friend Laura with my “Red Owl” this painting is my entry for the monthly Draw-a-Bird Day, a lovely event that Laura kindly used to host on her Blog Create Art Everyday! I don’t know if Laura still doing this her Blog to not be updated but in any case let’s keep this lovely event going on #DrawABirdDay
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! ❤
Today my watercolor illustration is for #SeptemberAdventure I am playing along with Charlie at doodlewash for the theme of this month which is “Travel Memories”. This post put together several of the inspiring prompts and ideas that Charlie listed for the 30 days of painting. This beautiful September is a month dear to me because my Birthday is coming up sometime soon.
My watercolor today is about travels. In my past years I have been travelling around Europe visiting beautiful places and creating great memories in my life. Today my illustration doesn’t just bring back my travelling memories but is especially in memory of the day I traveled from the other side of the ocean where is my country Italy to USA. I already mentioned in another post that last August 22nd has been 14 years that I live here in California. My illustration is a way to remember that long day I traveled from Naples my City, via London to Los Angeles, it took approximately 20 hour it was an adventure for sure! 😉
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”
Today I am also very happy to join my friend Laura with my “White Dove” this painting is my entry for the monthly Draw-a-Bird Day, a lovely event that Laura kindly host on her Blog Create Art Everyday! #DrawABirdDay
Today for my #AugustAdventure this post is for August 8, I am supposed to share my favorite birdit was a joy to make this one. A portrait of a “Bluebird a California Bird“!
I have been always fascinated by blue birds. The color blue is one of my favorite in every shade and when I see a blue bird is always a magical moment they are so precious!
I am also joining Laura and this lovely bird is my entry for the monthly Draw-a-Bird Day, that Laura kindly host on her Blog Create Art Everyday!
Today for my #NatureDoodlewash “hike” I enjoyed a walk on the beach 😉 it is very hot these days the beach seems to be the place to go. I am going to share my watercolor of some beautiful ocean treasures “Seashells”. I love everything that has to do with ocean you already know that by now! Seashells are fascinating to me , they are beautiful and great finds, I collect pieces of seashells and fossil seashells that I find in special places I go, or if they are interesting fragments. I use them for my one of a kind or limited edition jewelry that I create inspired by nature. I like to think that these seashells had a long life under water and that the ocean, wind and sand shaped them year after year. I enjoyed very much to paint these beauty.
