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.

  17. Your words come from deep inside! It's a blessing you can give life to the way you see things by drawing them! Keep it going doll!

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.

READING UPDATE: ASIMOV'S ROBOT SERIES AND BUY JUPITER SHORT STORY COLLECTION

As some of you might know, one of my favourite science fiction authors is Isaac Asimov. I've always loved science fiction. I have grown up reading it and I never really stopped. Asimov's Robot Series is composed of six novels and thirty seven short stories. Recently I've read a few novels in the Asimov's Robot series and today I'm going to share my reviews of them. I'm also going to share my reviews of some of the novels from this series that I have read in the past. Moreover, I'm going to share my review of Buy Jupiter and other stories by Isaac Asimov, a short story collection that features some stories from his Robot universe. As for the fashion part of the post, nothing I'm wearing is new (and you know it because I signed up for Slow Fashion initiative). I had this yellow top for ages (see how I styled it here and here) and that goes for this olive green pencil skirt and the boromina sandals. However, the bag is new. I forgot about that- it was a g…

WHAT TO SEE AND DO IN BLAGAJ ( BOSNIA AND HERZEGOVINA)

I truly enjoy showing you around Bosnia and Herzegovina. Have you noticed that? You know, there are some really amazing destinations in this country. Today I'll take you to beautiful Blagaj, located only a short drive from Mostar city. Blagaj is a picturesque historical village located in Herzegovina region. This little green river oasis is an increasingly popular tourist destination and not without a reason. Blagaj village has got one of the strongest and most beautiful river springs in Europe. This stunning and potent water spring creates Buna river and is a impressive example of karst river formation. Right next to it you can find a historical dervish house (tekija) that is open all year round. 
The dervish house dates back to the sixteenth century.  It placed right next to the entrance to the cave  where the river Buna springs from and it is an incredible site. The cliff over the cave is a very impressive sight as well! You can even go for a boat ride in the cave and see this…

FASHION ILLUSTRATION FRIDAY: ILLUSTRATED TOTE BAGS REDBUBBLE

I don't know what it is about the combination of tote bags and fashion illustrations that I like so much. Maybe it is simply a matter of combining two things that I love. I adore tote bags for their practicality, I like to carry one with me (often tucked in my regular bag) at all times because you never know. We all know that the typical disposable plastic grocery bags are a huge no-no for the environment, so a tote bag is a must (even if just for grocery shopping).  I personally like to wear tote bags even on occasions that have nothing to do with grocery lists, but to each his own. As for fashion illustration, well I don't have to explain that. I have literally loved fashion illustration for as long as I can remember. Joining my creative skills with tote bags seemed logical! Some of you might remember that I even hand painted some vintage tote bags. In fact, you had the chance of seeing one of those tote bags recently here. As much as I enjoy using textile prints, I also li…
