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.

TRYING OUT NEW HIKING TRACK (MOUNTAIN OASIS RUJIŠTE, HERZEGOVINA)

Today I'm taking you to Rujište, a mountain oasis located only a short drive away from Mostar city. This beautiful area is located on mountain Prenj. Nicknamed the Herzegovina Himalayas, mountain Prenj boosts of peaks over two thousand meters high. We didn't go all the way to the top this time, though. Instead, we payed another visit to Snow House (Snježna kuća) hotel. This time I shared my lunch with the hotel's cat, not the dog (for the yellow dog I made friends with last time was nowhere to be seen). In addition, we tried the new recreational hiking track. I'm happy to report that my review of this track will be a positive one. The length of the track is around one kilometer, the climb is approximately seventy meters so it is perfect for recreational hikers.  Moreover, there are workout tables and instructions throughout the track (for those who really want to get serious about their fitness). Weekends are a great time to get back to shape (or at least try to). Spe…

Inspired by..... Tijana/ Nadahnuta....Tijanom

Hi everyone! It's time for another Inspired by....post. The medium is acrylic on cardboard. This time I illustrated Tijana from fashion abejita. Painting lace is always a challenge and I'm aware that I have a long way to go when it comes to illustrating fabrics, but all things considering, I think I did pretty well. In fact, I'm quite happy with how this painting turned out. This outfit is a summery one, but it is suitable for Spring as well. Besides, green is in this Spring. 
Zdravo svima! Vrijeme je za još jednu Nadahnuta s...objavu. Medij su akrilne boje na kartonu. Ovaj put sam naslikala Tijanu sa bloga fashion abejita. Slikati čipku je izazov i znam da imam još puno toga za naučiti kada je ilustriranje tekstila u pitanju, no  kada se sve uzme u obzir, mislim da ova slika nije loše ispala. Zapravo,  poprilično sam zadovoljna s time kako je slika ispala. Ova kombinacija je ljetna, ali zapravo se može nositi i na proljeće. Osim toga, zelena je sada u trendu.

7 OCTOBER OUTFIT IDEAS & 2 LINKUPS

Hello everyone! How are you? I'm in bed with fever, I think I caught a virus or something. Anyhow, today I have a few October outfit proposals to share with you. I sure love getting dressed in autumn. With this fall styling ideas, I'm joining Modish Matrons (fifty shades of fall) Linkup. I'm also linking this post with Mica's Weekly Wear Linkup. 
1. ORANGE DRESS STYLED WITH A LONG GREEN VEST AND A VINTAGE BLAZER What says October better than an orange dress? Orange is the colour of warmth. It is also the colour of Halloween and pumpkins. So, I'd say it is a pretty good choice for this time of year. I love wearing this  Bellissima dress (see how I styled it here, here and here). I paired this orange dress with a long green vest (besides m last post, I also wore it here , here and here) and a curd vintage blazer (see how I styled it here). I finished the outfit with black square heel boots (previously worn here and here) and a bag (previously worn here and here). Ove…
