Frozen Lake (painting of the day) / Zamrznuto jezero (slika dana)

Here is one of the reproductions I painted as a part of that art course I took last month. It depicts a frozen lake. The background is dominated by the mountains and the clouds. I do like the composition of this painting. I'm glad I chose to paint this one. Painting the forest was an interesting task. I think that it is supposed to be a painting of a landscape in late Autumn. The lake is frozen, but the leaves on trees are golden and red.  I spent a lot of time on these clouds (you can see the progress on Insta account here and here)  and in the end, I'm not quite satisfied with how they have turned out but well. The medium is oil on canvas. I love oil paints, but you already know that. The painting hangs on the wall in my home at the moment. I don't plan to frame it. I'm not sure what I will do it. Perhaps give it to somebody? I think it would make for a nice gift. Paintings of landscapes are usually a good neutral choice. That is all for today. Thank you for reading.

Ovdje je jedna od reprodukcija koje koju sam naslikala na tečaju slikanja koji sam pohađala prošloga mjeseca. Prikazuje zamrznuto jezero. U pozadini dominiraju planine i oblaci. Sviđa mi se kompozicija ove slike. Drago mi je što sam baš ovu izabrala da je naslikam. Slikanje šume je bilo zanimljivo. Mislim da bi ovo trebala biti slika krajolika u kasnu jesen. Jezero je smrznuto, ali lišće na stablima je zlatno i crveno. Dosta sam vremena potrošila na slikanje ovih oblaka ( poveznice na moj Insta račun i fotografije na kojima možete vidjeti tijek slikanja možete naći u engleskom dijelu tekstu).  Na kraju nisam baš zadovoljna s oblacima, ali što se može. Medij su uljane boje na platnu. Obožavam uljane boje, ali mislim da to već znate.  Trenutno slika visi na zidu. Ne planiram je uokvirivati za sada. Nisam sigurna što ću sa njom. Možda je nekome pokloniti? Mislim da bi bila lijep poklon. Slike krajolika su obično dobar neutralan izbor kada su u pitanju darovi. To je sve za danas. Hvala na čitanju.

  3. Wonderful!!! Very expressive, bold! I'm sure it'll make a great gift to someone you love. A big part of my personal art collection is art found at antique malls by self-taught artists or students of art - lots of them do it with so much heart, I just love it!

  4. This is a really lovely seasonal landscape. You did a great job and the frozen lake looks very realistic. If you do decide to give it away, it would surely be a very nice gift for a lucky someone :)

  8. Bravo na izvedbi, stvarno mislim da sve više i više napreduješ, samo tako i nastavi dalje! Meni se čak sviđa vidjeti je ovako neuokvirenu na zidu, uopće mi ne smeta :)

  10. Dear Ivana,
    I think the effort your put in the clouds was a good investment as I really like how you painted the clouds. In fact I love the painting in summary - it reminds me so much on my country Bavaria with the mountains in the back and the frozen lake in front. You did again a very good job and I see you benefit from the course!

  14. Very impressive work, Ivana. You seem to have mastered the atmospheric perspective. Love your bold ductus here. Don't frame it, because the wrong frame would ruin the impression. This painting needs no frame. Let it speak for itself, hope that makes sense.

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.

February recap / sažetak veljače

You have seen (more or less) what was February like for me. Now tell me... what was February like for you? Are you happy that it's already March or do you feel like time is flying too fast?Are you looking forward to the spring?

 As far as blogging goes, it seems that I have became more focused on fashion illustrations. In the next month the illustrations will have their place, but there will be more focus on DIY....or at least I think so, because I'm kind of heading in that direction. Apart from that, I have no plans. I have so many ideas when it comes to what I want to blog about, that I often have hard time deciding what not to include. As always, feel free to write about what you would like to see.

Vidjeli ste (više-manje) kako sam provela veljaču...sada mi recite, kakav je vama bio prošli mjesec? Veselite li se proljeću? Jeste li jedva dočekali ožujak ili vam je vrijeme prebrzo proletjelo? Ne zaboravite da nam možda i nije još stiglo i da ime za mjesec ožujak potječe od st…

Wearing the First Dress I Ever Made: A Grey Midi Dress

Here it is: the first dress I have ever made entirely by myself. I did make some summer dresses in the past, but I had sown them without a pattern and a sewing machine and at any rate I wouldn't call them very accomplished. I mean, they weren't nearly as polished as this dress and they were not nearly as complex to make. I'm very happy with how this dress turned out. I'm even happier I took this sewing course in the first place because now I can make more dresses like this one! If you remember my November highlights post, you might remember that I've mentioned how I've recently finished a beginning fashion tailoring and sewing course with designer Stanka Zovko. 

I promised to show you the dress I made for my course 'graduation'. At the end of this lovely sewing course, you get to choose not only what you're going to make, but also the material and the pattern.  The sewing pattern is typically chosen from one of the sewing magazines this designer has …

How To Style Animal Print? + An Autumnal Fairy Tale at Ethno Village Near Medugorje

With winter at our doorstep, I think it's important to make the most out of the left over autumn days. With that in mind, my husband and I payed another visit to our favourite (still not officially opened!) ethno village in vicinity of Medugorje. I wrote about this eco/ethno village a number of times, so if you want to know more (or just see more photographs) feel free to check out my old posts herehereherehere and here.  Autumn is Herzegovina is always gorgeous, and this year hasn't been an exception. We had some sudden weather changes and drastic changes of temperature, but I would still describe this autumn as a beautiful one. The Sunday this photographs were taken on was rather gorgeous, so I'm certainly glad we went on this little trip. I know I'm repeating myself, but I do cherish moments like this. Every time I step into this little village, I feel as if the time has stopped or rather like I have just travelled in time. It's such a charming place! I h…
