format : A4
pen and make up on paper

I already showed you this illustration here (when I talked about painting with make up), but in the meantime I added some finishing touches, so I'm posting it anew. Have a lovely day everyone!

Već sam vam pokazala ovu ilustraciju ovdje (kada sam pričala o slikanju sa šminkom), ali u međuvremenu sam dodala neke završne poteze, tako da je iznova objavljujem. Ugodan dan vam želim!

  5. Lovely illustration dear! Have a great weekend! xx

  6. Such a cute illustration, I love it!

  7. Dear Ivana, I would say now your illustration is really perfect! The blue eyes are very striking and as usual I'm very impressed by your talent. Thanks for sharing and have a wonderful weekend.

  8. Mislila sam da je savršena, a sada mi treba neka nepostojeća reč jer je još lepša nego prethodna :)

  9. Hi, dear Ivana! Very beautiful illustration and you know what, when I saw the page, I thought it was fabric, like painted on fabric to be a skirt or a scarf. I have to show you the link for the scarf, need to remember it :) It's so easy to knit with fingers :) Why don't you paint your illustrations on fabric, that would be great to see a scarf that way! I love the illustration! I've started posting on Fridays too, so please forgive me for the "signature" :) It's automatic after my name :) Hope you have a great weekend! - new post: The Power of a Smile

    1. I often paint on fabric! I'll prepare more blogs about it soon:)

  10. You did a great job with this one! She has such expressive eyes!

  11. Beautiful!!! Have a great weekend! Kiss:))


  12. You never cease to amaze me with your art skill Ivana darling. If you lived in the US, I'd probably invite you to my class to give art lessons every so often. Both my students and I would benefit greatly from your skills. I can't draw or paint anything to save my life. Even though sometimes I refer to myself as an artist cos of my makeup skills but I don't believe that counts, LOL. I clicked back to the original post. Phenomenal! And now the addition of makeup makes it really pop some more. I absolutely love it! Kudos girl and have a fantastic weekend.

    1. thank you so much. I'm sure I would enjoy a painting class with your students. I used to volunteer regularly with kids, I was even in charge of one workshop project for kids with special needs and it was a lot of fun!

  13. Those bright eyes are so striking and lovely!

  14. Nice nice! Depthless eyes!

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…
