My Collaboration with music artist Nu-San and Coming Soon Album Release!

Today post is an update for this interesting project and collaboration. Who follow me maybe remember my older post. Recently I had welcomed new followers to my Blog and this post is an update on this on going project and collaboration.

I have collaborated with music artist  Nu-San and I was commissioned to create a watercolor painting as the Cover for his Coming Soon New Album             “Nu Nostalgia” today we are celebrating the launch and release of the Video of Nu-San Single “Come With Me” a beautiful and moving song included in the album. I like to share it with you while we’re looking forward to the Album release!

Nu-San yesterday released the video of the Single “Come With Me” you can watch it here:

About Nu Nostalgia Album Cover Painting

This is a bigger painting than my usual size,  is a custom artwork  requested in a specific size which is 12 x 24 inches. This is the result of another great collaboration and very unique custom commission. I am happy that one year later I can finally talk and reveal more  about this beautiful project. During the month of November 2017, I was contacted by Electronic Music Composer  Sandy Bain aka “Nu-San” from Scotland, UK.  Nu-San is a dear friend he loves my art and already own some of my work. One year ago when Nu-San contacted me he was working on his new album and had an idea. He asked me to create an “Original Painting” inspired by a “Gothic haunting style” in my own style that he wanted to use as the album cover for his coming soon new album with the title “Nu Nostalgia”.  Nu-San still working on some of the final tracks and will release the album sometimes soon. As you can see the image of my painting have a huge watermark on it for ©Copyright reasons since the album isn’t released yet.  I will share more in the near future!

This is a wonderful project!
And I am so honored and grateful beyond words that Nu-San wants my Art to illustrate his music. I love music and love to support music artists with my art. I always wanted to create an artwork that would be illustrating a music album as the “Cover”  I am so happy that this wish is coming true and would be tangible soon. Nu-San discography includes other beautiful albums but this one is the first that would be made in “Vinyl” and it is a dream coming true for Nu-San. We are happy to share this achievement it is special. Thank you again Sandy for this great collaboration!

This project and watercolor painting is also part of my Collection Series, check my Gallery  “ART FOR MUSIC” a series of artworks inspired by music artists reflecting my passion for music.

Nu-San

Nu-San is a solo project and electronic music producer and composer from Scotland, UK.
He has composed original chill out and dance tracks and creates  unique haunting sounds and techno music, that’s the way I can best describe the sound of his music.  I can’t wait to listen what he has created for the new coming album!

This is one of the photos of  “Nu-San” that inspired my Portrait for the new album cover, you can see his face in my painting!

My painting is a watercolor and ink portrait in my signature style it has a hint of Gothic and a feeling of darkness. Nu-San asked me to include in the painting ravens birds, a graveyard scene, a castle and gave me the freedom to create. I enjoyed painting this atmospheric portrait not in a classic and common “Gothic Style” but revised in my own style.  We are very happy about how the painting turned out and we can’t wait to see it as a Vinyl.

Day 7 – Frida Kahlo Portrait (Off Prompt)- Original Watercolor ©Carolina Russo

Today painting is an off prompt! I decide instead to paint a tribute portrait to Surrealist Artist “Frida Kahlo” this is a commemorative month since yesterday was her birthday. Artist all over the world are giving their tribute. I made my portrait in my style but something a little different from my usual, it has the Surrealist touch, I painted inspired by her life story and by several of her original paintings like ” Self-Portrait With Bonito -1941″, “The Broken Column -1944”, “The Deer Wondered – 1946″, ”  Elements like flowers, animals, arrows and internal body parts are often appearing in her paintings as her creative and unique way of artistic expression.

Frida Kahlo mostly painted self portraits one of her famous quotes says: “I paint self-portraits because I am so often alone, because I am the person I know best” 

Details about my watercolor paintings:
 My watercolors is outlined with black and white ink pens. I used  French Artists Watercolors  Sennelier  l’Aguarelle,  Ink pens used COPIC Multiliner Black ink #03 and 05 . A Alvin Draft/Matic #03 Limited Edition Pink Mab Graves Pencil.  Pentel Aqua Brush – I painted on Bee Paper for watercolor 140lb, 100% cotton, cold pressed, size 6×9 inches .

Today I went out for a coffee at Barnes and Nobles I like the book store. After walking around looking at books I got to sit down to relax while enjoying sipping my coffee and looking at some interesting art magazines. I got that moment called “Inspiration” it can come anytime and anything can trigger my creativity that’s why I always bring a sketchbook with me in my bag, in case I get inspired and feel to sketch or paint. I had a page in my sketchbook where few days ago I tested this Blue watercolor shade that I really like. I then started sketching this in “Surrealism Style” an Owl with antlers”. I quickly traced it with my Carmine Red pencil and I used over a Copic multiliner and a fountain pen Pilot Prera I like how it turned out a simple fast sketch can turn in perfection.

Digital Art – Moon on Water

Moon on Water
Moon on Water

In this Digital Art creation I wanted to emphasize the fascinating beauty of the full moon, positioning the moon in a surreal place, down on the earth, like it is almost possible to touch it. I combined the beautiful natural elements, of a forest with a water stream embracing the glowing moon. I always love to gaze at the moon, it is very inspiring and so fascinating.

I want to thank you so much HeavyCloud for your kindness on letting me use one of your wonderful and precious photos, this full moon. When I saw this stunning photo on your Blog I felt that I wanted to create one of my Digital Art paintings with it. And here it is the moon is the main element in my creation Grazie!
