– 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).

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.

Day 25 – #WorldWatercolorMonth

– Poppy Flowers –
Day #25 World Watercolor Month

This is Day #25/31 of the World Watercolor Month  today I wanted to paint my watercolor on “Tomoe River” Paper a lightweight and ultra smooth paper from Japan. This is a very light weight paper only 52 gsm nothing like watercolor paper,  it is so thin that is almost see through.  This is a writers paper perfect for fountains pens and any kind of pens and pencils also markers because it doesn’t bleed through.  The paper also holds beautifully light washes of watercolor. If you are familiar with the “Hobonichi Techo Planner” from Japan then you know that the amazing trendy planner that has followers all over the world is made out of this paper and is often used like an illustrated planner more like a sketchbook to illustrate the daily life! I love how the watercolor move freely and blend on the smooth magic thin paper. I painted these Poppy flowers straight with the watercolors without even trace them before. I also love the way the purple shadow turned out I outlined with the black ink pen but I wish I took a before picture it was beautiful also without the outline. I hope that you enjoyed my Day#25 in few hours I will post Day #26! ❤

– Blue Eyed Cat  –
Day #18 World Watercolor Month

 

This is Day #18/31 of the World Watercolor Month  today I painted this lovely blue-eyed cat!  Inspired by my beautiful cat “Dolly” that I had at my parents house for 13 years while growing up in Italy. We all loved her very much, she was the sweetest cat ever and gave us beautiful unforgettable moments filled with lots of love. She left this world a little more than 15 years ago. I miss her…today was the first time I painted her and when I look at those beautiful blue eyes she is alive! This painting is made in loving memory of Dolly ❤
