Watercolour of the day + Outfit of the day / Akvarel dana + Odjevna kombinacija dana


First of all, congrats to Brooklyn Grace, the winner of my last giveaway. I mailed the illustration the morning following the giveaway, so it should arrive soon enough. I think this was the first time I made this sort of a giveaway on my blog, i.e. a giveaway that featured one of my works. I was thinking about doing it for a while, but I figured it is better to work on improving my technique so I waited until I made something I could be really happy with.  There will probably be more giveaways of the same sort, so stay posted. Now, about the painting of the day. This watercolour took a bit more time to make, because I changed my mind about the colour length and some other details. I like the final look of it, though. In this post, you can see my painting process because I included some 'before and after' photographs.  I'm still figuring out watercolours, but at least I can say that I don't lack any inspiration. I'm always feeling inspired. 

Prvo čestitke Brooklyn Grace, pobjednici zadnjega darivanja. Poslala sam ilustraciju jutro nakon darivanja, tako da bi trebala brzo stići. Mislim da je ovo prvi put da sam organizirala neko slično darivanje, to jest darivanje u kojem sam poklanjala neki svoj rad. Već neko vrijeme sam razmišljala o tome, ali sam zaključila da je bolje da radim na usavršavanju tehnike tako da  sam čekala dok ne napravom nešto sa čime mogu biti doista zadovoljna. Vjerojatno će biti još sličnih darivanja u budućnosti tako da budite u toku. Sada, što se tiče slike dana. Ovaj akvarel sam dugo slikala, jer sam se predomislila oko dužine kose i još nekih detalja. Sviđa mi se kako je ispalo na kraju. U ovoj objavi možete vidjeti moj proces slikanja jer sam uključila i "prije i nakon" fotografije. Još uvijek učim raditi s akvarelom, ali barem mogu reći da mi ne nedostaje nadahnuća. Uvijek se osjećam nadahnuto.

----------------OUTFIT OF THE DAY ----------------ODJEVNA KOMBINACIJA DANA --------------


Location of the day is Siroki brijeg (in reality it is spelled Široki brijeg and the intial letter Š is pronounced like 'sh' in ship), a little town in Herzegovina that I've been visiting  frequently for reasons connected with the construction of my new home. In case in anyone is interested, my new home is still work in progress. Anyway, today I'm not going to only post that many photographs from Siroki brijeg but I will show you my favourite spot in this town and that is the Franciscan monastery and the church of Assumption of Virgin Mary. It is possible that the reason why I like this church so much is because it reminds me of the church in Jelsa (island Hvar). Maybe I should draw it some day, or even better- why not draw both of them? As far as outfit is concerned, your probably already know this dress, for it is one of the most frequently worn items in my closet.


Današnji lokalitet je Široki brijeg, (kojega u zadnje vrijeme često posjećujem jer tu naručujem neke stvari za novu kuću, ukoliko ikoga zanima, radovi su još uvijek u tijeku i ne nadzire im se kraj). Tako da neću danas objaviti puno slike iz Širokoga brijega, alu ću vam pokazati svoje najdraže mjesto u ovome gradu , a to je franjevački samostan i crkva Uznesenja Djevice Marije. Moguće je da je razlog zašto mi se ova crkva toliko sviđa jer me podsjeća na crkvu u Jelsi (na otoki Hvaru). Možda bi je trebala nacrtati jednoga dana, ili zašto ne nacrtati obje? Što se tiče odjevne kombinacija, vjerojatno već znate ovu haljinu jer je jedna od najčešće nošenih odjevnih komada u moje ormaru.

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.

CROATIAN FASHION WEEK: MATEYANEIRA FASHION ILLUSTRATION IN WATERCOLOUR

I can't really attend fashion weeks because I work full time, but with the help of the internet I get to follow fashion weeks digitally. One of the benefits of living in digital times, I guess. If you remember, I have already shared a number of fashion illustrations inspired by  spring/summer fashion weeks on this little blog of mine ( Valentino Spring Collection 20191 & 2, Zuhair Murad Spring Ready To Wear 2019 collection1 & 2Louis Vuitton Spring Collection 2019 ). Please don't click the links to buy the illustrations, they won't lead you anymore as my art store was lost and it will take me a while to manually remove all the links (I'll explain this later on in this post, for now let's concentrate on positive things like this cute new fashion painting I'll share with you and the design that inspired it).
 I was a bit late with catching with Croatian fashion week because I've been busy with work. About a week or so ago, I finally found the time…

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.

TROGIR CITY (PART TWO): KAMERLENGO CASTLE AND OTHER SIGHTS

KAMERLENGO CASTLE AND FORTRESS 

As I promised in my last post, my description of  wonderful Trogir city continues. Today I'll show you the city's promenade, its walls and a historical fortress Kamerlengo. We'll start with the latter, as it is one of the main attractions. Castle and fortress Kamerlengo was designed and constructed in the fifteenth century by a local Croatian builder and sculptor known as Martin Radoj. Martin also worked on some of the Gothic elements of Trogir city cathedral and later on in life he was entrusted with the construction of Trogir port. The fortress was commissioned by the Republic of Venice, hence its name 'camelengo ' that is an Italian version of chamberlain. I didn't go inside of  Kamerlengo fortress this time because I've been there before so I just enjoyed observing it from the outside. Besides the Kamerlengo castle, today I'll also show you the city walls and other details from Trogir. Enjoy.
