– 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.

You can see more of my Paintings visiting my  GALLERY  there are several Galleries you find  them in the drop down menu under Watercolors.

All my watercolors paintings and illustrations are available for Pre-Order in Limited Edition Art Prints   here on my Blog!

– 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.
