May The Mermaid’s Month

 

Ezra The Timeline Shifter

Welcome May and Happy Mother’s Day! 
Hope you all are having a wonderful day. During this month there is a lovely painting and drawing Art challenge it is MerMay the theme is Mermaids! This is a 31 days daily painting or drawing challenge, a great way to be creative. Art Challenges are good to test your skills, experiment new techniques and also to get out of block if you are in a moment of lack of inspiration. Join is fun and allow you to get in a serious every day painting routine or just to create a mermaid once a week or whenever you are able to.  Every year I am looking forward to a few Art Challenges and one of them is this one! An inspiring challenge to paint a few new mermaids to add to my “Mermaids Collection Series”. This year I am not planning to do the daily 31 days challenge but I will create some new mermaids weekly throughout this month. Last year I started a Mermaid Spiritual Series on the theme of “Awakening” I will continue on this theme this year too. I do create my own mermaids freely without follow any prompt list but if you would like to join and need a prompt list search for mermay2022 prompt list and you will find many. #MerMay is very popular between the artists community on Instagram you can also follow me there @carolinarussoart

💗 Today I am sharing the watercolor painting I made for this week for Day 5 my mermaid name is:  “Ezra The Timeline Shifter”  
I love how it turned out and I hope you do too! If you would like a Print of her, Open Edition Fine Art Prints hand enhanced are available in size 8×10 inches. I added a new feature that allow you to purchase this print right now, right here at the bottom of this post. If you have any question or request please send me a message

Day 30
Prompt: Pose

Today painting is inspired by the prompt “Pose” and for me is time for a meditation 🧘‍♀️ pose! This is what instantly came to my mind while preparing for today painting.

Day #28 World Watercolor Month 2020

Day 28 – Prompt: Complementary -Watercolor ©CarolinaRusso

#WorldWatercolorMonth2020

Day 28
Prompt: Complementary

Today painting is inspired by one of the beautiful birds I see once in a while here in California, is the California Scrub Jay it has a beautiful blue color and often is mistaken for the “Blue Jay” which is another specie. The Scrub Jay is a nonmigratory bird and can be seen also in urban areas. I see it sometime in my backyard, it is a pretty big bird and is always nice to watch whenever shows up! Here there is a photo of this beauty.  About today prompt “Complementary” and this painting, I think that us humans and animals are complementary we won’t be the same without animals ❤

Prompt: Abundance

Today painting is inspired by the official prompt Abundance. I loved to paint this one!
