The InkTober Worldwide Challenge

78315df6f0f901f4-weblogo

October Challenge 2016

31 Days 31 Drawings

Every October, artists all over the world take on the InkTober drawing challenge by doing one ink drawing a day the entire month.

Anyone can do InkTober just pick up a pen and start drawing!

 

Illustrator Jake Parker is the creator of this great challenge and initiative started in October 2009. Jake  created InkTober as a challenge to improve his inking skills and develop positive drawing habits. It has since grown into a worldwide endeavor with thousands of artists taking on the challenge every year.

I am very excited this year to join Jake and participate to this great challenge with artists all over the world! I really would love to create all the 31 ink drawings. Last July I participated and completed my challenge for the “World Watercolor Month”  31 Paintings in 31 Days, very similar to InkTober.  Tomorrow I am ready to start this new challenge with a new sketchbook, inks and my creativity. I will try to post my drawings daily and if happen that I am too busy to post it doesn’t means that I am not drawing then look for to the next day post. Be ready for my new InkTober Gallery.

 

Visit Jake Parker website for more details, inspiration and lots to learn. I exported here the rules and Official prompt list for the month.

The Official 2016 Inktober Prompt List:

If you like to join the challenge don’t forget to always add the hashtag #INKTOBER2016 post your ink drawing online on your Blog and/or on Instagram, Facebook, Twitter…add the tags to any place you share your drawings online!

 

 

I hope that my friends artists here on WordPress will join this challenge with me!

Doodlewash and watercolor sketch by Carolina Russo of Shrimp

Doodlewash and watercolor sketch by Carolina Russo of Chocolate Mint Mousse for National Chocolate Mousse DayHello everyone! I am Carolina Russo from Southern California (follow me on my Blog, Twitter, Facebook, Instagram and Pinterest!). I am very excited and happy to be a Guest Doodlewasher! This blog is fantastic! I admire Charlie’s creativity and his doodlewashes are beautiful and inspiring. I am so proud to be able to say that I am one of the featured on Doodlewash. Thank you Charlie for having me here.

I was born and raised in Italy, the beautiful country where I have been surrounded by Italian art, creativity, history, Mediterranean traditions and European influences. My father is an artist and I grew up observing and being amazed by his oil paintings. I knew since I was a child that I wanted to be an artist. I enjoyed drawing, coloring and creating things since a very early age.

#DoodlewashDinner – National Shrimp Day!

Today I found out that is National Shrimp Day which is perfect for our Doodlewash Dinner!

Shrimps are delicious and a great source of Omega3 they are consumed worldwide and there are numerous dishes and recipes to choose from paired with some nice white wine. I was born on a city on the Mediterranean Sea in Italy “Naples”  which is very close to the famous Capri Island and to the well-known Amalfi Coast where there are amazing places to go to eat fresh and great seafood which is a favorite to many!

Think about a great Shrimp Saute or a fresh Shrimp Cocktail, or more a great quick Shrimp linguini and so on… I know we’re getting hungry here! 😉
For my watercolor today I painted a single beautiful Shrimp I couldn’t choose any dish… so I wanted to paint the beauty of the shrimp itself which is a lovely sea creature!

Details about my
doodlewash:
I used a basic watercolor palette Artist’s Loft Fundamental watercolor pan set  this pan set is considered for beginners but I enjoy use it for the variety of colors and for sketching. I also used a  Pigma Micron Black Ink pen #005 and Brown #01 over a Mix Media sketchbook!

With this National Shrimp Day  I  join Charlie at doodlewash  for a #DoodlewashDinner!  You are welcome to join with your doodlewash!
Tag your image #DoodlewashDinner.

Sketching Realistic Eyes

Realistic Eyes

Realistic Eyes

I love illustration and I enjoy sketching in general, and this time is not one of my jewelry sketches that I use to share here  more often.  I am having fun sketching realistic eyes, it is amazing the effect that can turn out just playing with a HB #2 pencil and a couple of pastels or watercolors to give a hint of color. I made these sketches pretty quickly, so it is a very rough practice drawing and please forgive my photos that are not super great!

I am planning to make other ones more in a high definition. If you step back a bit from your screen you will see that this eye it is pretty realistic!

Please leave me a comment and let me know what do you think? 🙂

April Celebration! #FindaRainbowDay

 

Double Rainbow

Double Rainbow

Double Rainbow

The Month of April is filled with interesting National and International Celebrating Days!

I am participating to the “Celebration” choosing some of the days that are inspiring to me and post some of my work like my own photos, watercolors, sketches, poetry. I got inspired to do this from my dear Doodlewasher friend Charlie O’Shields at Doodlewash I will join him some days during this month with my watercolors and tag my image #doodlewashaday  if anyone that love doodlewash wants to join please visit his post here  it would be fun!

Today is April 3rd and is “Find a Rainbow Day”

I am celebrating this special National Day with my Photography posting two lovely photos of double rainbows that I was lucky enough to be at the right time at the right spot when the beautiful rainbows appeared in the sky. The first photo was taken in 2013 I like how clear the colors of the main rainbow are sadly the second rainbow is very light to see in both photos but is there.

The second photo was taken on November 2nd 2015 is a photo very dear to me because this beautiful double rainbow appeared about 30 minutes after my dog Mojo died exactly 5 months ago yesterday! That day I felt like the rainbow was a sign from above from Mojo saying that she was happy.  I wanted to capture that moment and I took the photo with my phone.

April is also Poetry Month  and the 17th is National Hiku Poetry Day let’s get inspired and celebrate!

The following two sites are great resources for the “official” days that people are celebrating somewhere in the world: National Day Calendar and Days of the Year. If you like to celebrate in the way that best inspire you just choose a date National or International and let your creativity flow! 😉

Have a wonderful and colorful National Rainbow Day!
