Watercolor – Queen Flower

Queen Flower – Original Watercolor ©CarolinaRusso


Exploring a new idea 

Today I am excited to share with you one of my latest watercolor painting having the title  ” Queen Flower”.
I painted in my traditional signature style in watercolor and ink but this time not on the usual watercolor paper. I came across this 10 inches diameter paper lace doily at home and my first thought was to make a ink drawing on it! I love to explore new artistic and creative ways to paint, testing papers or surfaces and see how watercolor works especially on unusual ones! I am always driven to try new techniques and materials. I have to say that the combination of watercolor and ink pen did work really well without any bleeding through the paper! I am happy and pleased with the outcome! The watercolor looks great on this paper doily, the original painting is lovely and would look great with a floating frame.  I will sure create more paintings on paper doilies in the future.

Tears In The Fire

Tears In The Fire – Watercolor ©Carolina Russo

Hello everyone,

I hope you all had a great start of the year!
I know lately I have been pretty quiet and didn’t post here on the Blog as much I’d like to. I took a break to recharge my creativity.  I didn’t know how to feel in this beginning of the year, there is so much going on in the world.

Today post is about the release of my new watercolor painting with the title Tears In The Fire this is my first painting of the 2020 and it is very special to me.
I feel so much sadness for the heartbreaking situation affecting Australia from months under the catastrophic wildfires that is destroying, animals, wildlife, natural habitats, and people.  Sidney University experts estimated that over 1 billion of animals has tragically perished it’s heartbreaking!

I gave the title Tears In The Fire because I can only imagine how much, tears, pain and suffering these beautiful animals are going through. My painting is dedicated to the wonderful Koalas 🐨 and to all the rescuers that are helping and caring daily for them to heal painful burnt paws and injuries and to all the other animals in desperate need of care surviving this horrific fire.

I hope that my painting can rise awareness and give a tiny contribution to support the wonderful Koalas and wildlife victims in this terrible time for them. I love all the animals and now they needs our help, together we can make a little difference in their recovery. Since I was a child I dream to one day being able to hold a lovely Koala in my arms! I hope I will one day! ♥️

Prints of my painting are now available for purchase as Open Edition signed and hand enhanced in size 5×7 and 8×10 inches please visit my >>  ETSY Shop

If you don’t know what Inktober is, let me tell you a little about it! Inktober is a wonderful worldwide art challenge happening every year during the month of October. It was created in 2009  by illustrator Jake Parker 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. Participating artists create 31 ink drawings for 31 days sharing their daily work online on social media, groups and websites. There is a huge participation to this successful event, thousands of artist around the world join this challenge every year, it’s amazing!  I have participated creating my Inktober series since 2016.  Coming soon the new official prompts list for the 2019! I am so curious to see the list and what I will create this year! I hope you will follow my challenge in October or join in if love drawing! ❤

How all this happened?
Well this month I was thinking about the coming soon challenge brainstorming what I would like to do and experiment this year for my series. I thought that right now was the right time to  create a tangible product out of one of my favorite Inktober drawings.  From a long time I had the idea of a “Collectible Sticker” which is a fun and nice way to share my art. Stickers have been always very popular and still now more than ever.
