Painting of the day (Madonna, watercolour on paper)

Today just a quick post, sharing my art. The medium is watercolour on paper. I'm not sure how I feel about this painting. I have a feeling like something is missing but I can't quite figure out what. I will probably have to work on this idea a bit more.  Maybe I need to add a background? Lately I've been finding inspiration in classical paintings more than anything, mostly in the work of sixteen century painters. It is amazing how accomplished they were. I do honestly feel we have a lot to learn from the classics.

 I took part in another art course (my third one) last year and perhaps I will prepare a post about it one of these days. As soon as the new art course starts (this February), I will probably sign in again. I feel very comfortable using oil and acrylic paints, but I need to work more on my watercolour skills. Aquarelle is a painting method I still need to work on. In many ways this medium is quite unique, and I need to learn more about the technicalities, the paper types, the various paints and so on.  I'm aware I still have a long way to go with this medium but as they say practice makes perfect. Have a lovely day everyone!

  1. Dear you are very interesting person.

  2. great drawing:)

  3. look super amazing...thx for sharing

  4. She is beautiful, Ivana! I also love classical art, it amazes me what those artists were capable of! We are so getting used to fast pace of life that we don't cherish the moment in time, the meditation of such things as making art, home-made cooking, and so on... we as humanity at this stage, I mean. Obviously, you as a person take your time to learn and enjoy your new skills! And with time and practice, you will be able to accomplish more and more. Much love!

  5. this red maxi dress reminds me on that one, that i wear on Stephanies Shop "dresses for rent". i like your version a lot!

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. 

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.

Is it too early to start reaching for those festive …

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

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 …
