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! ❤

Hills_Sunset

Today I want to share this beautiful photo I took last night at the sunset.
Almost every night we go on a hike on the hills around the area and I am experiencing some of the most amazing sunsets! Yesterday when I took this shot I was all the way on top of one of the hills. I took this photo with my phone quickly without thinking too much, I just wanted to grab that beautiful moment and the lovely colors in the sky. When I came back at home I opened the photo on my computer and with a beautiful surprise I see that I have been able to capture that amazing red sun ray I found it to be so beautiful and amazing like a Divine sign. I didn’t edit this photo at all it is just as I captured it. I like the time spent hiking those hills it is a great way to workout and it is beautiful to be immersed in the wild nature, there is silence up there a place to meditate and listen the inner voice of your soul blending with the wind.

Over the Hills

This is another photo I took a while ago on the same Hills and it is almost on the same spot I took the shot of the sunset.  This one was taken few months ago at early time when the sun was still high in the beautiful blue sky.

Digital Art – 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!

Silent Oaks

During the weekend I went to this wonderful place here, where I took some beautiful photos. I was immersed in the pure wilderness of the nature. I enjoyed this peaceful and silent place between the ancient old Oaks Trees!
My inspiration lead me to use one of the beautiful photos to create this Digital Art painting!
I hope that looking at this creation you can feel that peace…

Sometimes soon I will post the original photos!
