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.

WHAT IS AN IDEAL MAXI DRESS FOR A SUMMER VACATION?

Hello, lovely readers! Summer is finally here. Are you as excited about summer as I am? Today I'm back with another summer styling, and this time it's about a white floral maxi dress. I love white items for the summer, and if they come with a floral print even better. If you read my last post, you know that I decided to welcome the summer in bay Torac (on island Hvar, Croatia). I told you that one of the first things I packed was a yellow jumpsuit as it is a good vacay item and so easy to throw on when you're at the beach. Another essential vacation classic is a maxi dress. This white maxi dress with a cute floral print proved to be the perfect vacation item because it is so easy to dress up and down (for example, here you can see how I styled this maxi with kitten heels). I actually got this white maxi dress as a part of a collaboration review post last year. Today you can see me wearing it in a more dressed down summer version, with tropical print sandals (same here) an…

STYLING A YELLOW JUMPSUIT FOR SUMMER ( BAY TORAC, ISLAND HVAR)

How to style a yellow floral jumpsuit for summer? You know when I packed for island Hvar (Croatia), this yellow jumpsuit was one of the first things I packed. I don't wear jumpsuits and playsuits that often during the colder months but I opt for them often enough when it gets warmer. One great thing about a floral jumpsuit is that it is a statement piece on its own. That means that styling it is quite easy. Another advantage of this kind of garment is that you can easily dressed up or down. I wore this yellow jumpsuit to beach, so I dressed it down with a beach bag and white sandals. If I were to dress it up, I would probably pair it with heels (as I did here and here). 
Jumpsuits are simply ideal for vacation wear. They are so easy to thrown on. I like to wear them over swimsuits for that beach chic look. I got this jumpsuit in a collaboration last year, and I'm still not bored of it. I definitely plan to wear it a lot for my island Hvar trip. Yellow is such a great colour f…

A PRINTED DRESS FOR CATCHING A FERRY IN SUCURAJ, ISLAND HVAR (CROATIA)

What to wear when you're travelling? In summer, I often opt for print dresses because they are fun and seem to go well with anything. I packed quite a few printed dresses for my visit to island Hvar (Croatia). As long as the dresses are comfortable, they are my 'go to' travel outfit. This mixed print dress is one of my favourite travel summer dresses. You have seen me wear it a lot on this blog, especially for hiking and sightseeing (and you know I believe in shopping one's closet). It's a great day to night dress as well, quite easy to dress up and down. My outfit proposal of the day is more casual in tone so you could said that I dressed the dress down. The shoes I choose to go along with this dress are printed sandals from Art brand. I bought them when I was in Split last spring and they're super comfortable (not sponsored).  I also wore a backpack because they are more practical for travelling. I have quite a pragmatic mind when it comes to fashion, and I …
