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.

TIPS FOR A MORE SUSTAINABLE EASTER CELEBRATION

Happy Easter Monday everyone! Today I'll talk about how to have more sustainable Easter week celebration. I'll share some of my tips as well as my 'green' Easter day traditions. Before I get into sharing those tips, let me just say that traditional Easter customs are more likely to be environmentally conscious. So, tradition is a great way to look for inspiration. Ask your elders, relatives and friends about their Easter traditions, they can give you useful tips, advice and inspiration. Naturally, internet is also a great resource for environmentally friendly Easter. There are a lot of creative people out there that are constantly coming up with sustainable decor and recipes, so why not tap into that? Feel free to share your Easter traditions as well. A great thing about collecting green tips is that most of them can be applied to any festivity!
My Easter day 'green' ideas include: using natural egg dyes, using recycled Easter decor, not being wasteful with fo…

IS MOSTAR A GOOD EASTER DAY DESTINATION? PLUS A SPRING OUTFIT PROPOSAL

Luckily for me, Mostar is an excellent Easter day destination. You see, I had travel plans for this Easter weekend, but I caught a bad cold so I decided to stay in the city I'm currently based in. That's actually not a bad thing because (if you ask me) Mostar makes for a great Easter day destination. Naturally, I've would have loved to visit my family, but since that wasn't possible, I'm happy to be spending Easter in Mostar. I've already cleaned and decorated my home for Easter so I'm all set. I've also prepared an outfit proposal but more about that later on. First I'll talk a bit about Mostar. Why is Mostar such a great spring destination? I can think of a number of reasons, but from top of my head I would say wonderful climate, beautiful landmarks and interesting history. Mostar is gorgeous in spring time. With its seven rivers and a number of lovely parks, Mostar can feel like a city oasis.

HOW TO STYLE A NAVY SUIT FOR SPRING? OUTFIT PROPOSAL & TIPS

EN In my last post, I've wrote about sustainable ways to celebrate Easter and today I'll show you what I wore for Easter. Typically I like to wear dresses for Easter day, but this year I decided to suit up. You have already seen a part of my Easter outfit in my last post, mainly the white linen folklore shirt I bought a few years ago (from a nice Croatian lady who specializes in making traditional and folklore garments). I believe you know that I have a thing for traditional and folklore clothing. As for the rest of my Easter styling, I shopped my closet to pick up this navy blazer. I paired it with navy flares I originally bought to wear to work. Good thing that my personal style isn't a casual one, and I actually enjoy wearing business/ formal wear I buy for work. If you look closely, you'll see that the blazer and the pants are not the same shade of navy blue, but slightly different. This blazer isn't actually a part of a suit, but often I like to create my own…
