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!

Into The Deep Sea – Digital Art

Into The Deep Sea – Digital Art watercolor ©Carolina Russo

Hello everyone I hope the New Year found you all well!

After I have painted daily for last 31 days and met my Challenge I wanted to take a short break to recharge but as you know I love to experiment new ways in my creativity and I love Digital Art so when I leave my brushes to rest, I love to work in digital. Today I wanted to share with you one of my latest Digital Art painting I made it yesterday. This digital painting is created out of the fusion of two of my original watercolor paintings that I made awhile ago, some of you may remember this Mermaid I painted in July Day 17  for #The WorldWatercolorMonth  I also used another one of my paintings created in July month which is this one July Day 30 Fish and Bubbles

As you can see from my two paintings I have created one new. I gave it more color and depth and give it the feeling that the mermaid is under water! I think this digital watercolor turned out really nice I love the colors, shades and lighting that I was able to obtain. I did print it out on heavy weight watercolor paper just like my paintings and it looks fantastic! But this is my opinion! 🙂 What do you think? I really would like to know your insight!

Details about my original watercolor paintings:
 watercolors are outlined with black ink pens. I used  French Artists Watercolors  Sennelier  l’Aguarelle 12 demi-godets half-pans travel metal box  Ink pens used  Pigma Micron Black ink #02 and a black ink  Pilot Prera fountain pen fine nib .  I painted on a large  8.5 x 11 inches  sketchbook.

Digital Art: my original watercolor paintings are edited with the latest version of Photoshop and other software to create the final digital painting.

❤ This painting is available now in Limited Edition and can be Pre-Ordered here for a limited time!
For this first Release I will only make #10 Fine Art Prints in size 8×10 inches!

Title of the print is “ Into The Deep Sea

If you like it don’t miss it!

For order and all the info price etc…go to my  > Shop Art Prints Page

 

Have a wonderful day or night!

Thank You!

Thank You!

A Wild Sunflower #WorldWatercolorGroup

A Wild Sunflower – Original Watercolor ©Carolina Russo

 

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! ❤

Travel From Italy To USA – Original Watercolor ©Carolina Russo

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! 😉

 

Details about my doodlewash:
 watercolor is outlined with black, blue and brown ink pens. I used  French Artists Watercolors  Sennelier  l’Aguarelle 12 demi-godets half-pans travel metal box  and Pigma Micron Black and Brown ink #01 and a Blue Pentel ink pen. Painted over a Mixed Media  Sketchbook!

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
