drawing a drawning...crtanje crteža










 






One thing I love about drawing (or painting) is that it makes me look at things like it is the absolutely first time I've seen them. Sometimes it feels like being reborn, this immersing myself into an image, trying to look at it from different perspectives. Often it's not about the things I'm seeing, it's about what the image of them resonates with inside of me. In some ways, art can be quite selfish. It is a feeling, or an experience if you will that I'm searching for...a way for me to explain something to myself, perhaps even a way of making myself play this difficult game of life. What I feel when I look at it, but even more what I felt while making it....that is the only thing that matters to me.

Jedna stvar koju volim kod crtanja (ili slikanja) je što me navodi da gledam stvari kao da je to zaista prvi put da ih vidim. Ponekad je to kao ponovno rađanje, to uranjanje sebe unutar slike, pokušaj sagledavanja iste iz više različitih perspektiva. Često uopće nije riječ o stvarima koje vidim, već o onome sa čime njihova slika unutar mene rezonira. Na neki načine, umjetnost može biti dosta sebična.  Radi se o osjećaju ili iskustvu ako želite, to je ono što tražim...način na koji bi si objasnila nešto, možda čak i način na koji bi se navela da zaigram ovu tešku igru života. Ono što osjećam kad je gledam, a čak i više ono što sam osjećala dok sam je crtala...to je jedino što mi je važno.

  7. Oh wow, Ivana you are so talented. I absolutely agree with on the way we interpret images we see and how they translate in our drawings. You may see the same thing so differently from someone else but that is the beauty of art. Great job!

  9. Splićanko:) u potpunosti potpisujem svaku rečenicu koju si napisala, crtanje je užitak.

    I really like this sketch, so much detailing and sunset photos are just stunning! Long time passed since I last visited Split, which is kind of sad for me.

    Would you like to follow each other?Let me know! :)

  10. Nisam nikada razmišljala tome ali potpuno si u pravu. To je nešto tako lično i sebično čak, kao što kažeš. Divne su slike <3

  11. It's really great that you are trying to paint from nature, it always helps to improve drawing skills and get some inspiration. I also like what you wrote there, it's true! Art always helps us to look deeper. I think you are a very special person with such an artistic perception of the world, Ivana:)

  16. Da, baš sam primjetila da mi je brat postao toliko društveno zakinut, sjećam se da smo mi ko mali pod ljetnim praznicima uživali družeći se i igrajući, a komunikacija djece danas svodi se na objavljivanje slika na facebooku s čudnim wannabe grown up facama i opisima tipa - za moju BFF <333- i onda cijeli arsenal komentara gjde se prepiru koja je gluplje ispala.
    Mislim, žao mi je radi toga, i jednostavno me plaši da će jednog dana možda i moje dijete tako odrastati, sve više smatram da je nemoguć utjecati na neke stvari.

    Pratim te, čitamo se:)

    1. da, istina...djeci odrastaju prebrzo, a zapravo samo imitirajuće loše navike odraslih...i mene to baš zna zabrinuti.

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.

My fashion illustration of the day + book review / Moja modna ilustracija dana + ogled knjige ( Le Diable au corps) 6.12.2016

This morning I read an amazing novel. Le Diable au corps (translated as The Devil In the Flesh) is a novel by Raymond Radiquet. Believe it or not, this was by first book by this French writer. I don't think I even heard of him before, which is odd, but well, it happens. In his time, Raymond was quite a celebrity and he is still considered as one of the important French writers of that period. Did I like this novel? Quite frankly, I loved it. I just couldn't put this novel down. I must have read it an hour or so. I got up a bit more earlier this morning so I actually had time to read it with my morning coffee (it is not a very long novel but still it is amazing how easy it was to find one's self glued to those pages). Perhaps I should make it a habit, getting up more early so I can read more. 
Jutros sam pročitala divan roman. Đavo u tijelu  (naslov izvornika Le Diable au corps) je roman Raymonda Radiqueta. Vjerovali ili ne, ovo je moj prvi roman ovoga pisca. Mislim da nika…

Lado (drawing of the day/ crtež dana)

Hello everyone! Have I ever talked to you about my love for folklore? I've always been keen on exploring folklore dresses and costumes, mostly because I find them to be very inspirational. In my view, folklore is one of the best fashion inspiration out there. The diversity and the beauty of international folklore dresses and costumes is enough to leave anyone impressed. Here I illustrated one of Croatian national costumes ( we have a lot of them), worn by Croatian national folklore dance ensemble Lado. As a reference for this drawing, I used a photograph from Lado's official catalog. The medium is coloured pencils on papers.
Zdravo svima! Jesam li sa vama ikada pričala o svojoj ljubavi  prema folkloru? Uvijek sam voljela istraživati folklorne nošnje i kostime, većinom zato jer su mi toliko nadahnjujući. Po mome mišljenu, folklor je jedno od najboljih modnih nadahnuća koji postoji. Raznolikost i ljepota međunarodnih folklornih nošnji i kostima je dovoljna da svakoga ostavi zadi…

Diane Von Furstenberg Resort 2018 ( fashion illustration of the day/ modna ilustracija dana )

I know what you're thinking. It's Summer, how can you think about coats? Well, I can. The sweat is literally dripping down by forehead, but I'm going to share an illustration inspired by Diane Von Furstenberg's 2018 Resort collection. It is always good to look forward to something, right? I'm pretty sure that a lot of ladies are looking forward to this collection hitting the stores this November. What I personally find so irresistible about it are- the colours. I'm very keen on bold colours and patterns, so no wonder this collection caught my eye.
Znam što mislite. Ljeto je, kako možeš razmišljati o kaputima? Jednostavno mogu. Znoj mi kapa niz čelo, ali ipak ću podijelit modnu ilustraciju nadahnutu kolekcijom Diane Von Furstenberg za 2018. godinu. Sigurna sam da će se puno dama razveseliti kada ova kolekcija stigne u trgovine u studenom. Ono što je meni osobno tako neodoljivo kod ove kolekcije su- boje. Jako volim žarke boje i uzorke, tako da nije nimalo neobič…
