Fields and Waters: Misty Stream

Misty Stream_s 

Welcome September!
This post will feature my two new paintings created during this week they are included in my new watercolor series.  This is “Misty Stream” a moody landscape with beautiful colors combined with a hue of purple and a light touch of gold.  I am really happy with it! 
I am currently working on a Collection of small intuitive watercolor paintings named “Fields and Waters” if you missed my previous blog post, you can read all about this upcoming Collection here
Today I like to share an up to date little video gallery I made, where you can see all the paintings created until now but the latest seascape which I will post it down below! I hope you enjoy!

Fields and Waters is a Collection of intuitive and meditative art that soothe the soul of the viewer through delicate colors emitting feelings of harmony. 
This series is inspired by the calming beauty found around us in nature. I am focusing mostly on landscapes and seascapes using two very important and powerful elements Water and Earth. 

Living The Now_s
This seascape is the latest I painted. The title is “Living The Now” size 3×9 inches. I like the unusual paper size, I have another paper same size ready to paint a landscape! 
Each Original painting of this series is unique and painted on a beautiful deckled edges 100% Cotton watercolor paper, hand cut and torn by me. In my opinion the raw edges adds a beautiful touch to this Collection.

Fields and Waters

Awakening Path _s 

I hope to find you all well and that you’re having a lovely Summer. I can’t believe we are already at the end of August!!! I am doing well,  just I haven’t had time to post here on the Blog. Today I came to say hi to all my friends and followers and  to give you an update on what I am doing.
I am currently working on a new Collection of small watercolor paintings named “Fields and Waters” if you follow me on Instagram @carolinarussoart you already had a glimpse of it!
Fields and Waters Series_s
Fields and Waters is a Collection of intuitive and meditative art that soothe the soul of the viewer through delicate colors emitting feelings of harmony. I think at this time we all need peace and serenity in our lives.
This new series is inspired by the calming beauty found around us in nature, I am focusing mostly on landscapes and seascapes using  two very important and powerful elements Water and Earth.  
I have been painting places that appear in my memory or a representation of places I like near where I live here in Southern California. The ocean or a path where I go for my walks.

Sometimes I paint what  is created intuitively by my soul, I don’t know  the location but I am sure they are somewhere in the Universe.
When I paint without any reference is what I love the most it is a form of meditation where all is quite and calm,  I let my soul and intuition guide my brush strokes… the water and color freely blends together, taking precious shapes that become alive on the paper creating together the outcome I love.

Each painting is painted on a beautiful deckled edges cotton watercolor paper hand torn by me adding a beautiful extra touch. These are small paintings size 4.5×3 and 6×4.5 inches, they look beautiful framed.4b86af69-0ffc-4b94-a57f-a0406ec9caec

This painting title is “Perpetual”  the ocean, the water movement and fluidity, water is conscious and carries information supporting life on Earth.
I am painting this whole series mainly with a painting knife and a couple round brushes. I love to paint with the knife it creates beautiful shapes and effects with watercolor.

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

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.

#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 ❤

#WorldWatercolorMonth2020  

World Watercolor Month 2020 – Day 24
Prompt: Abundance

Today painting is inspired by the official prompt Abundance. I loved to paint this one! Today I went back painting in my well recognizable style, this month I am enjoying to paint every day in a different way so that you can see more of the ways I work.  I practice meditation daily from years,  for me came natural the inspiration to paint her practicing mindful meditation for Abundance. I hope you like her and that she inspires you.
Do you meditate? I would love to know!
