Rusalka 2 (my painting/ moja slika)


oil on canvas

ulje na platnu

The background is inspired by an actual landscape but only partly. The face, the eyes, the skin colour... It turned out exactly the way I wanted it to be. Rusalka 2 ( There is also a Rusalka 3 and if you want, I'll post that one as well).  The only problem is finding a proper place for it in my house... It's a sort of painting that draws attention to  itself. I just find it hard to find what is the right place for her. Any suggestions?

If you scroll down, you'll find a collage on which you can see how the painting looked after I had worked on it for the first time. As you can see, it was pretty much finished. I only added another layer of colour and some finishing touches. In general, it's how I work with oil paints. However, to paint one old church in Starigrad, it took about ten attempts and I'm not even sure I'm sadisfied with it. Sometimes a painting is finished in a few days, sometimes it takes a few weeks... or even a few  months. You never know and that is actually a fun part. It's like every painting has a mind of its own.

Pozadina je nadahnuta stvarnim krajolikom, ali samo djelomično. Lice, oči, boja kože...ispalo je točno onako kako sam željela. Rusalka 2. (Ima i Rusalka 3 pa ako želite i nju ću objaviti) Jedini problem je pronaći pravo mjesto za nju u svojoj kući. To je takva slika koja privlači pozornost na sebe. Teško mi je pronaći koje je pravo mjesto za nju? Imate li prijedloga? 

Spustite li se niže, vidjeti ćete kolaž na kojem možete vidjeti kako je izgledala nakon što sam prvi put radila na njoj. Kao što vidite bila je više manje završena. Samo sam dodala drugi sloj boje i malo je dovršila. Većinom tako radim s uljanim bojama. No, da bi nacrtala jednu staru crkvu u Starigradu, trebalo mi je desetak pokušaja i nisam čak ni sada sigurna da sam posve zadovoljna sa njom. Nekad je slika gotova u nekoliko dana, nekada su potrebni tjedni ili mjeseci. Nikad se ne zna i to je zapravo zabavni dio. Kao da svaka slika pomalo sama o tome odlučuje.

  2. Teško je reći gde da je staviš, to ipak ti najbolje znaš ;) Stvarno izgleda fenomenalno i zanimljivo je to što je svaka priča za sebe i što ne znaš koliko će vremena i truda biti potrebno za svaku...

  7. Dear Ivana, this painting is absolutely impressive! The expression of her eyes is touching me in my soul. I think this painting is absolutely important for you and therefore it deserves an important place in your home where you can met her eyes as often as possible as it looks like as if she has a special message for you on which you should remember as often as possible.

  11. I think where you have it above the back of the couch in your collage photo is good.

All your comments mean a lot to me, even the criticism. Naravno da mi puno znači što ste uzeli vrijeme da nešto napišete, pa makar to bila i kritika. Per me le vostre parole sono sempre preziose anche quando si tratta di critiche.
