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 :)

  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.

ONE MORE REASON TO VISIT BLIDINJE: MOUNTAIN CHURCHES

In my last post, I explained why nature park Blidinje is more than worthy of a visit. If you ask me, Bosnia and Herzegovina is such an underrated destination, for it hides so many stunning natural oasis and hidden gems. This nature park is one of them. Within the park itself, there is so much to see and do. Today I'll show you (once again) the mountain Church of Saint Elias The Prophet. Moreover, there is another church in this nature park I need to bring to your attention. That would be the church of Virgin Mary of the Snow (located in vicinity of Blidinje lake).

Nel mio ultimo post, ho parlato di Blidinje e vi ho spiegato perché il parco naturale Blidinje merita una visita.Secondo me, la Bosnia ed Erzegovina è una destinazione molto sottovalutata, perché qui potete trovate tante meravigliose oase naturale.Questo parco naturale è uno di questi posti bellissimi.All'interno del parco Blidinje, c'è tanto da vedere e da fare.Oggi vi mostrerò (ancora una volta) la chiesa di m…

WHAT TO WEAR FOR HIKING IN SUMMER? GORANCI VILLAGE & PLANINICA HILL

Today I'm back with another hiking outfit. Hiking in summer feels like an obvious choice, perhaps because we don't have to worry about the weather as much. The warm temperatures are luring us in the open. One thing I love about hiking is how it allows you to set your own pace. As a chronically ill person, that's very important to me. Living with an immune disease can be really tricky because you might feel fine one day and be unable to get out of the bed the next. Even the doctors themselves do not understand immune illnesses completely and nobody knows for sure what is causing them. All we seem to know is that immune illnesses are turning into an epidemic. Even living with them doesn't make them seem any less mysterious. The unpredictability of these illnesses makes planning regular work outs complicated. Hiking is a form of exercise that you can do even when you're not in top shape. So, I can be an appropriate form of exercise for most of us. What do you think?
