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.

14 WAYS TO STYLE ONE BLUE DENIM SKIRT: SUSTAINABLE FASHION FILES

Sustainable fashion is such a hot topic right now, I wouldn't be surprised if it turned into a fashion revolution.

One good way to build a functioning wardrobe you'll love to shop is to make sure you have a couple of essential items in it. These basic pieces can help you shop your closet more easily and become more sustainable in your fashion choices. A denim skirt is one such classical and essential item.  Today I'll show you ten ways to style a denim skirt. I had this particular denim skirt for a couple of years, it's by Croatian denim brand Amadeus (not sponsored) that I can recommend for its quality denim.

If you're creative enough, you can figure out a way to wear most of your clothes in any season, but some ite…

HOW I GOT INSPIRED BY D&G AUTUMN/WINTER 2019/2020 COLLECTION? (PART 1)

Yesterday I finally took the the time to watch (and listen) to the Dolce & Gabbana Autumn/Winter 2019/2020 collection. The runaway show was organized in retro style and lasted about half and hour. Instead of music, it featured a British narrator who commented on the designs in the old style (that is how fashion shows used to be presented, narrated instead of accompanied by the music). Anyhow, I found the both the narration and the narrator charming. The fact that the narrator pointed out all the materials used was quite helpful. The models seemed to move quite quickly, but there were 127 looks displayed so the show took a quite some time to finish. It took me twice as long to study the photographs as to see the show. The trend analysis took even more time. However, that time was not spent in vain for I was finally inspired to ponder my autumn and winter outfits. What do you know? D&G Autumn/Winter collection gave me plenty of inspiration for the colder season ahead. I don'…
