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.





This is what the sketch looked like....

Ovako je izgledala skica.....






Some of your expressed an interest in seeing the 'making of' my paintings. Here are two videos from my YouTube channel (if I can call it a channel, it's more a sidekick to my blogs to be honest), if you want to see the painting process.  The first video is about 15 minutes long and the second one is about 4 minutes. I didn't manage to film the entire painting process, but you can see most of it. The whole painting probably took about an hour to finish. There were lots of details in this one. As I already said, painting lace is tricky.

Neki od vas su izrazili interes u tome da vide kako pravim svoje slike. Evo dva videa sa moga YouTube kanala (ako ga uopće mogu nazvati kanalom, više je to neki pomoćnik mojim blogovima da budem iskrena), ako želite vidjeti proces slikanja. Prvi video traje oko 15 minuta, a drugi oko 4. Nisam uspjela snimiti cijeli proces slikanja, ali možete vidjeti većinu. Trebalo mi je vjerojatno oko sat vremena za završiti sliku. Bilo je puno detalja. Kao što sam već rekla, nije lako slikati čipku.

  5. Konačno sam ugrabila trenutak za blog i nadoknađivanje prpouštenog i baš mi je drago to što je u pitanju ova objava gde sam ja u pitanju i baš danas kad su mi stigle tvoje ilustracije :) Šta da ti kažem, uvek mi je drago kad se odličiš za neku od mojih slika i kombinacija. Sad sam baš dobila želju da ponovo nosim tu haljinicu koja kao što kažeš nije isključivo letnja. Mogu samo da zamislim koliko je teško naslikati čipku, ali isto tako mislim da ti odlično ide za rukom. Baš mi je drago što je i video tu. Ostavljam ga za nešto kasnije kad budem stigla :)
    Hvala ti još jednom na svemu! <3

    1. hvala ti, drago mi je da ti se sviđa. Čipku je malo složenije naslikati i još uvijek istražujem sve mogućnosti. Poznavajući sebe, na kraju ću smisliti neki svoj poseban način za oslikavanje čipke.:)

  16. It's really very beautiful, dear Ivana, I also liked the music on the first video! Lovely illustration and well done, because lace is really difficult to draw. I used to draw and paint, and people like my illustrations and paintings, I was even interviewed on that for a TV documentary once, but one day I went to the National Gallery in London and saw a picture that showed lace and after that I have seldom done a thing again. I felt so poorly talented after that :( People are telling me that I am crazy, but it was my feeling :) Such a "coincidence" to see lace now and to remember that "episode" :) I loved the illustration and videos! Hope you have a lovely day, dear Ivana!

    1. You shouldn't have felt that...I mean nobody can draw lace without practice, everyone had had to learn draw lace at some point in order to have been able to pull it off...that artist in National gallery included. We can we be good at something we try for the first time, it has nothing do to with the lack of talent...everything takes time. Drawing is hard, it just is.

  19. I love that you set yourself the challenge of illustrating one of the more difficult materials - I think you've certainly done this outfit justice; the green lace looks lovely! Hope you're having a great week so far Ivana - it's so exciting to feel Spring arriving, right?! :)

  21. I really enjoyed seeing the illustration in progress and you did a really good job with depicting the feel and texture of the lace. The more you practice, no doubt the better you will get. The dress Tijana is wearing is just lovely. I look forward to when it will be warm enough to wear dresses like this :)

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…

Fashion illustrations of the day (markers)

Hello darlings! How are you? Can you believe that February ends today? This month has just flown by. I know it's the shortest month in the year but still. Today I'm going to share 3 fashion illustrations and sketches with you. The medium for all of them is marker on paper. I don't work with markers that often, but sometimes it is good to try something different. The fashion sketches I'm sharing are all about 3 colours: purple, green and red. Spring is in the air, so this is my reflection on all those trends for the new season. The first illustration shows a girl wearing a purple and blue jumpsuit. The second illustration features a girl wearing a transparent green dress with a top and a skirt under that dress. The third illustration shows two girls in red gowns.

February Recap (art & DIY projects & outfits)

I've put a lot of effort into blogging this February, I hope it shows. As far as the content goes, February was similar to January, mostly a mix of my illustrations and outfit posts (here). This month I was full of positing ideas and I managed to make many of them happen. I feel pretty good about that. The only thing I feel bad about is making my blog monolingual and not using my other languages, but translating texts from English to other languages takes such a long time. It is so much easier to just write in English.  Hopefully, I'll manage to change that and make my blog multilingual again. I need to organize my time better. Fingers crossed. For March I already have a few posts prepared. You can expect more art (mostly fashion illustrations) & outfit posts. 








DIY PROJECTS 
I shared two DIY projects in February, one about making a Barbie dress, the other was about how to paint a plant container. I don't have any DIY projects prepared for March, but I'm sure that I…
