Green eyes, pink lips / Zelene oči, roze usne


I know I have shared this painting before, but in the meantime I decided that it is not really finished, hence I  added a few finishing touching. Here is my final version. Maybe. Who knows? Perhaps I will decided that I need to fix it up again. I quite like this face. It looks friendly. Interesting how some paintings seem to have a life of their own. Speaking of which.... How has life treating you lately? I still haven't gave up on multitasking while I'm drying my hair (because my hair is so thick I need to kill time). Remember how I told you how  I accidentally dropped a book in the sink while I was drying my hair (here)? Fortunately, the book had solid covers, so it wasn't damaged.  Tonight I did it again, just without dropping the book. I managed to read three pages of The Sandcastle by Iris Murdoch while I was drying my hair. Good for me:). The novel is fabulous btw. I'm sure I would love it! She's a brilliant writer. Have you read anything by her?

Znam da sam već prije podijelila ovu sliku, ali sam u međuvremenu odlučila da nije skroz gotova, pa sam dodala još par završnih poteza. Evo konačne verzije. Možda. Tko zna? Možda ću ponovo odlučiti da je moram popraviti. Sviđa mi se ovo lice, izgleda nekako prijateljski. Zanimljivo je kako se čini da neke slike imaju vlastiti život. Kad smo kod toga?....Kako život u zadnje vrijeme? Ja još nisam odustala od toga da radim dvije stvari odjednom kada je sušenje kose u pitanju (jer mi je kosa toliko gusta da moram ubiti vrijeme). Sjećate se kada sam rekla da mi je slučajno ispala knjiga u umivaonik (ovdje)? Srećom pa je knjiga imala dobre korice pa se nije oštetila. Večeras opet po starom, ali ovaj put mi nije ispala knjiga. Uspjela sam pročitati tri stranice romana Irish Murdoch dok sam sušila kosu. Bravo za mene. Roman je divan usput. Sigurna sam da će mi se dopasti. Ona je sjajna spisateljica. Jeste li pročitali što od nje?

  2. It's a very pretty portrait. I like how you added different things Ivana, such as the bow & leaves. There's so much you can do with it. I try to multi-task as much as I can.

  7. Baš mi se sviđa ova nijansa roze, nekako je posebna...Ajme ja se već jedno sat vremena spremam na pranje kose, to mi je uvijek tortura jer također imam užasno gustu kosu pa čitava procedura traje i traje...dođe mi da se ošišam samo zbog toga! :D

  8. I like how you've added to this artwork, and even more so how feminine the portrait is! I see what you mean about her seeming friendly by the way, the eyes look so kind, and I think the blusher helps too :) Have a lovely weekend..

  11. Loved the finished painting, dear Ivana, the eyes and the lipstick... the kind of lipstick color that I like :) And I have dark green eyes, though very seldom the pictures show, cause I normally photograph in a shadowy light! So, I loved the painting! You are amazing, drying your hair while reading a book - good it was not dropped this time :) No, I never read anything by Iris Murdoch, I think. I have to check - I was demanded to read so many books at some unis, that sometimes I really forget :) Hope you have a very nice weekend, maybe drying your hair and reading books, why not - that is really brilliant!

  12. That's really a nice and friendly face - and a funny story of your "accident" while drying your hair. I don't use a hairdryer, my hair is drying in the air (I think, this needs about 2 hours but I can do just everything wile this time ;-))
    Lots of hugs, Traude

  13. I really like the eyes on this portrait! They're not only lovely but there's something some lively and expressive about them. You did a great job of bringing her to life. You are the artist so you decide when the piece is finished. I love that you read while drying your hair. Maybe I should do that so I could read more. I'd probably end up burning myself though LOL ;p

    1. thank you dear...who knows maybe I'll burn myself next time ha ha...Sometimes multi-tasking is not the best idea. I'm still not sure about this case.

  14. Hi Ivana! Such a long time without stopping by, I just moved from apartment and I still have to go and set the internet, that's why sometimes I am so absent! But it is always a pleasure to soak into your amazing art and make me realize that inspiration can always come from a different source! Thanks for keeping me inspired! Love the eyes and the feeling you can spot at them!

    Have a lovely weekend!

  21. It has a friendly face indeed!
    As an art/design student, I know what you mean when you say it's hard to know if a drawing/painting is done. Will it ever be done? We always want to add something or change something :)

  23. Hihihi, what a great idea to read while drying your hair, dear Ivana! You have such a beautiful hair, but I can imaginge, that it´s a little bit boring drying it;-)
    I love this painting! It´s so amazing.

  24. Multitasking seems to be my way of life. I'd probably be bored otherwise. I love this painting. She's very pretty and her jute bow is so cute. Lovely details Ivana. Glad your book didn't get ruined. And no I haven't read this author, no surprise there right? This year has been great so far. I can't complain. Hope it's been great for you too. Have a great rest of the weekend.

    1. thanks dear:)...actually I was using it by the sink because that's the only place where I can plug it in...perhaps next time I will dry my hair in the kitchen:) seems safer!

  30. Dear Ivana, I see this wonderful drawing is now even more perfect! Yes, she looks friendly and I believe really that drawings have a own life ... Obviously you are able to do multitasking. I have to admit I try to avoid it as I know by my own experience that in my case it definitely not always works. And a book in the sink is not the worst :)

  33. Nisam čitala ništa njeno ali zapisala sam kao podsetnik. Ne sumnjam u tvoje preporuke :) Još jedna fantastična ilustracija, a te oči i ljubičasta koja vuče na roze boju su prosto kao magnet za vid. Sušenje kose i čitanje? Dobra ideja! :)

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.
