My new creations, which involve only water and color: 
editorial watercolor illustrations for magazines and newspaper articles. 
As I mentioned in the post about editorial illustrations in my prevoius posts:
These days editorial illustrations extended beyond the world of politics or cartoons as it was in previous years. Now, online newspapers and magazines like to utilize artist’s creativity and supply their articles with colorful editorial illustrations (and quite often the watercolor illustrations are leading in comparison with digital or acrylic illustrations) in order to highlight a conceptual element to engage readers fully into the information that article is delivering. 

I let my imagination go wild and created many splashes of watercolors, including strong and beautiful words:

I guess, I just followed my LOVE & PASSION to paint in watercolor with the believe that my watercolor editorial illustrations for sure will engage the readers of magazines and newspapers; that they would invite the readers into a written word, supplied with splashes of watercolor silhouettes. 

And for seasonal type of editorial illustrations, I’ve welcomed fall into my watercolors:

I’ve also created two cute trees that indicate the Beginning of Fall:

By now I have three special galleries that are devoted to editorial choices:


All three of these galleries contain creative artworks from abstract to detailed realism to add a lot to an article or a blog post.

Watercolor Animals – Editorial Illustrations Types

Watercolour Artist Illustrator Mare and Foal at sunrise

What is exactly an editorial illustration? Historically, this kind of work came from vintage magazines and at the beginning was pretty much for advertising, for social and political satire, or funny cartoons. Nowadays, when the printed and online media expanded dramatically, editorial illustration as well extended way beyond the world of politics or simple cartoons. Online or paper newspapers and magazines post & print illustrations together with their articles to highlight a conceptual element to engage their readers. 

In my example above, the editorial illustration of two horses, mare and foal, can represent an article in either Farmers Market booklet, accompany text of natural history magazine, or be a good editorial addition to an article on motherhood and raising children in parenting newspaper. 

Next example can serve as an editorial illustration for children’s periodicals or book for kids. This cute mouse is caught in action preparing for a long winter, building a nest; or hiding its home from the wild cats:

And the full realistic paintings of two Chameleons, one just a baby and another is quite sneaky an clever one, they tell their stories as well; and, certainly, would look amazing next to an article about behavior of these amazing cold-blooded reptiles:

So, to conclude, editorial illustrations of animals can certainly touch the hearts of different media readers, enhancing the text and providing educational input and humor.

I was contacted by Liesl Marelli. the editor of 
Women in Art 278 Magazine .

 She came across my work on the World Wide Web, and found that it would add a wonderful diversity to the Women In Art magazine.
Per her note, she was glad to discover artist like myself; and, she was happy to invite me with my artwork for their October issue. 

 In the invitation letter, Liesl mentioned: 
“Our magazine is published (in full) online and also in a printed format. We have more than 40,000 readers and our audience continues to grow.” 

It was thrilled to share my art, particularly the landscape Blake’s Garden:

Artist Statement

My artist’s goal is to achieve a balance and harmony between the beauty provided by Nature and the ability of the artist to convey this beauty on two dimensional surfaces. When this harmony is accomplished it evokes a visual experience and generates the emotions between the viewer and the painting. I believe that watercolor is the medium that can do it all.
