Welcome December!

 

Hello everyone today is the first day of December and it is snowing on my Blog!

I love snow but living in Southern California is quite impossible from my location ito have snow unless I go up to the mountains when it’s snowing there.
So… I have to pretend to enjoy a peaceful snowfall and have it on my Blog! ❤ LOL

This month there are some nice watercolor painting challenges starting today! I hope to find the time to join one of them like I did last year, I am thinking at the   “12 Days” Challenge hosted on Instagram and Facebook  by The Bad Apple Artists Collective

Bad Apple 12 Days Challenge Official Prompt List 2018

If you want to play along check the above link, or just join me doing this challenge you can follow along and show me if you create anything! These  Art challenges are a great way to create new work, I love to create new series for my collections of Limited Edition Prints, challenges are great to spice up your creativity and to work on your skills and habits to paint or drawing daily and to have ideas if you’re scared to the blank paper! 😉

For now I wish you all a wonderful Day and a Happy December!

Let it Snow!

Warm – #WorldWatercolorGroup

– March Challenge:  Paint What You Love!

Today prompt list for the monthly challenge at doodlewash is  “WARM”  I am joining in.

Today the word warm made me think at many of you out there that still have snow lately (you know I love snow!)  I have seen via social media lots of snow here in US, in other States than where I am, which is sunny and a little bit too much warm now for the season, over  80 degree feels like Summer during day time, especially this week. The weather has been little crazy playing hot and cool after the needed rain we had two weeks ago. Seems next week we will cool down!
Today painting is more of a cute illustration and is inspired by the latest snow, and my little girl need to keep warm! This is a quick one that I sketched very fast on my Hobonichi Planner!

Warm – Original Watercolor ©Carolina Russo

Details about my watercolors:
 watercolors are outlined with black 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 Hobonichi Planner (Japan) over Tomoe River paper a very thin, lightweight paper great for fountain pens and not so wet watercolors.

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 are available for Pre-Order in Limited Edition Art Prints
