My art lately- classical themes (Madonna with the baby Jesus 1 and 2)

I've been painting all my life and I still feel like I have so much to learn. That's the thing about painting, it's so full of possibilities and there are so many different mediums out there that a part of you always feels like a beginner, even when you have degrees that prove otherwise.  Painting, sometimes it  feels wonderful and sometimes frustrating, but  I guess that what they say is true, when you love something, you find time for it. Lately I've been working on some classical themes, looking up to 16 century painters and perhaps also trying to interpret their works in my own way. Today I'm sharing two recent works of mine. They are not reproductions ( I do enough of those at art courses), but they are inspired by classical paintings. 

1. MADONNA WITH THE BABY JESUS #1

The medium for this one is acrylic paints on cardboard. I added finishing touches with a marker, so technically speaking this painting is a mixed media one. I'm pretty happy with how it turned out, since it was a quick sketch and all. I might research this theme a bit more. I wanted to create a painting where blue would be the only dominant colour and here it is.

2. MADONNA WITH THE BABY JESUS #2

The medium for this one is coloured pencils on paper. As of recently, I've been working with coloured pencil more. Last year I got more into drawing and pencil drawing in particular. I made some interesting drawings. I wrote about how I learned to love drawing more here. I plan to work more with pencil this year. This drawing is more a sketch, but I'm thinking of turning it into a proper large format drawing. I probably have way too much drawing ideas. :)

WHAT DRESS TO CHOOSE THIS AUTUMN? SPECIAL OCCASION OUTFIT IDEAS

As I mentioned in one of my last post, I'm already thinking about what I might wear for all those festive occasions that are coming up. Autumn and Winter both have its fair share of festivities. Our social calendar can be quite busy this time of year with all the meetings, events, festivities, celebrations, family and work parties. Some of these social occasions come with a black tie dress code, so I decided to prepare some outfit ideas.  A bit of formal wear inspiration for  my readers. All of these photographs were taken the day before yesterday. We're enjoying a rather warm Autumn in Herzegovina but these outfits I'm sharing can be easily be adapted for colder weather. Just throw a warm coat or a blazer over them, and that would be that.  That's what I plan to do once it gets colder. Anyhow, all four dresses I'll be sharing with you today are from Rosegal. This is my second collaboration with this site, if you want you can have a look at my first one here. With…

Fashion Illustration Friday: Inspired by Colours of Autum

Time for another Fashion Illustration Friday talk. We'll talk autumn and share some new autumn inspired fashion illustrations & outfits. Autumn is a season with one of the most beautiful colour palettes. Just think about all those gorgeous gold and red leaves! Even the fruits of Autumn are visually stunning, for example the delicious and juicy fruits such as pomegranates and grapes. With so much to appeal to our senses, it's hard not to be appreciative of autumn. It is a stunning season indeed, so small wonder I was inspired to create some fashion art. Scroll down to see and read more. 



AUTUMN COLOUR COMBOS TO CONSIDER
Besides enjoying the colours of autumn, I sure love wearing colour in autumn, and that's what I'll write about today. Whether we're talking about accessories or clothes, a bit of colour can take us a long way. Here are some illustrated & photographed colour combos to consider.

How To Style A Grey Sweater Dress in Autumn? Outfit Proposal of the Day

HOW TO STYLE GREY FOR AUTUMN/WINTER?
I was just thinking how grey doesn't always get the credit it deserves. Sure, there are many enthusiasts of the colour grey, but even among those of us who like grey, there are many lessons to be learned. One of the mistakes we make when styling grey items is to forget that grey does come in so many shades. It's kind of obvious, but it's easy to focus on the classical grey tones and forget to explore this colour in all its complexity. Not to mention that styling the lighter shades of grey can be a great way to refresh our autumn/winter wardrobe. Sometimes it does seem to me that grey is one of the most underestimated colours out there. However, that all might change as grey has been trending a lot lately. For example, you can have a look at some of my runaways picks bellow. 
Neutral outfits composed of lighter shades are a great way to stay away from the typically dark outfit combos. I'm not saying there is anything wrong with dark …
