New Painting – Princess Cordelia – #drawitinyourstyle Challenge

Draw It In Your Style Challenge

Princess Cordelia – Watercolor ink painting ©CarolinaRusso

This month I have participated to a very inspiring painting challenge hosted on Instagram by Artist Annie Stegg Gerard
she challenged us posting her first 2019 oil painting “Princess Cordelia” for a “Draw It Your Style Challenge!” To enter we had to draw Cordelia in our own style being free to change anything we wanted. Annie’s painting is stunning just as it is all her Art.  Ethereal, fantastic and dreamy. I was so enchanted by this beautiful painting it gave me feelings of peace, serenity and love for animals and nature very inspiring to me that of course I didn’t think twice I wanted to recreate it in my own signature style. I loved to paint her and I like the outcome.

Princess Cordelia – Oil Painting by Artist ©Annie Stegg Gerard

Annie’s art world is….
Inspired by nature, folklore and mythology, her work evokes emotion and imagination in the viewer.  Annie has a special love for the 18h century Rococo painters who have had a large influence on her own method. She finds inspiration in their imagination, and the dreamlike palette and lively brushwork that combine to create a wonderful atmosphere of enchantment.” I suggest you to visit her website at Gallery Gerard

I hope that you like how I have recreated mine in watercolors and ink and please leave me comments let me know your impressions and feelings about it! I really would like to know!

I have to tell you that it was a bit intimidating at first, because Annie is an amazing Artist some of her clients just to name a few are in the movie and gaming industry Warner Bros, Disney, Dreamworks and more… but Annie has been so lovely and commented on my work in progress and again when I posted on Instagram the finished painting, she said that it is beautiful and that means so much to me. What do you think?

Art For Music Series! New Release: Robert Smith “THE CURE” Portrait

 

Robert Smith – Art For Music Series – ©CarolinaRusso

ART FOR MUSIC Series!

New Release
– Robert Smith “THE CURE” Watercolor Painting Portrait –

Today post feature the release of my new watercolor painting a Fan Art portrait for my Collection “ART FOR MUSIC” a series inspired by music artists and by my passion for music. In this series I like to create artworks using several media, traditional watercolor paintings, ink drawings, digital art, photo manipulation and any other media that will inspire my creations.

The New Release of my watercolor painting is the  Portrait of Robert Smith the musician lead singer, guitarist, lyricist, songwriter  and the only consistent member of the iconic UK band “THE CURE” co-founded with Lol Tolhurst in 1976.  I am a lifelong fan of this amazing band, their music has been and still the soundtrack of most of my life. From a long time I wanted to paint a portrait of Robert Smith but it didn’t happen until yesterday. For some bizarre reasons I felt the wish and urge to paint since I haven’t painted much during this week. I wanted to paint, I was searching online for inspiration and I got inspired to paint Robert portrait right after I came across a nice photo  shared in one of the various Fan Groups of The Cure that I’ve joined on Facebook. That was the magic moment when I came across the color photo posted down below. I said to myself “today I am going to paint him!” I sat down and started to paint peacefully for hours listening my favorite albums of the band until the portrait was done! Isn’t amazing how creativity and inspiration works? Most of the time it strikes when you don’t even expect it! It’s fantastic! If ever Robert see my portrait I hope he likes it! ❤

The 2018 is a great year and a milestone for The Cure band because they are “Celebrating the 40 Years Anniversary 1978 – 2018” last July in Hyde Park,  London, UK they celebrated with a great concert and more to come in 2019! They are such a wonderful band is great that they are playing better than ever and still together! I am so happy that I was able to  paint my portrait during this milestone and commemorative year. I have attended their Concert in 2016  they came to US, Los Angeles during their North American Tour and I wrote a very detailed Blog post about that unforgettable and magic 3 hours concert I can’t wait to see them again. If you like you can read my wonderful experience of that day at The Hollywood Bowl read it > Here

This is the photo of “Robert Smith” that inspired my Portrait! What I loved is that he look you straight in the eyes!

Robert Smith ” The Cure”

My Painting Details: The portrait is a watercolor and ink  painting in my signature style. I am very pleased and happy I really love how the portrait turned out.

Day 9 – Sugar Frost – Bright Snow ©CarolinaRusso


DOUBLE CHALLENGE!

Day #9 Bad Apples12 Days ❤ Wintmas 2018
Prompts:  Frost – Bright Snow

Today post is for the Day #9 prompts are Frost and Bright Snow, I’ve created something different for today painting! Instead of using watercolor paper. I’ve painted on a beautiful leaf that I have harvested in the wood. I love to use nature finds in my art. I love to paint on leafs and bark. I painted a frosty snow queen and added gold and silver spark. I am very pleased with this leaf it looks beautiful and is 3D since the leaf isn’t completely flat has a beautiful dimension! I carefully hand pick and chose my leafs to paint on it, I look especially for their shape and natural curves.
