Inspired By The Sea: Acrylic Paintings






Today I will show you some new sea inspired art I've been working on. I've painted two seaside landscapes lately and I'm working on some new sea inspired art. The medium for both of these paintings is acrylic on mixed art paper. I do like working on this kind of paper, it's a fun alternative to canvas. Soon I will have a new group exhibition and I'm looking forward to showing you those works as well. Do you love the sea? Are you inspired by the sea? With these two paintings, I really concentrated on the waves. I do love to watch the restless movement of the sea. When I used to live by the sea, I could stare at the sea for hours. There is something quite magical about it. A few years ago I wrote this (here):


'Science proved that life on Earth originated in the sea but in our hearts we must have had always felt it. Why otherwise would we feel so inspired by the sea? Who of us has not felt his or her heart opening up while mesmerized by the deep blueness of sea? Is it an echo of an oceanic birth of life? Is it our soul that wanders enchanted towards that greatest mystery? We feel the song of the sea, even when we don't understand it.'

  6. Working with new mediums can be so inspiring. How exciting that you will be showing your work in a new group exhibition. You've really managed to capture both the turbulence and the placidity of the sea in this work. I'm quite fascinated by the sea and wished I lived near one. Well at least we have rivers in New York ;p

  9. I love how you're now applying your art to so many different areas - from fashion to the ocean! You've done a brilliant job here. I also really love 'seascapes' as they can be so calming and tranquil to look at; they also seem to resemble summer for me, as that's when I most often find myself around water :) Hope you're having a brilliant week so far, Ivana!

  11. Your painting is beautiful, and I love it on the tote bag! :) I really like spending time by the sea too, even if it's not something I get to do a lot of.

    Hope that you are having a great week so far :) I've managed to catch my first winter bug (only 2 weeks into winter, ha!) So it's a low key one here!

  13. What a gorgeous painting of the sea. I especially love the way you made the waves come alive through the use of a lighter shade placed strategically throughout the blue. The sea has always been a part of my visual mental cue when I take myself to a peaceful spot in my mind. And my two cats would be there as well. Hahaha. I am such a cat lady, I know. Anyway, I really love your soothing blue ocean art on the tote bag and the pillow and the phone casing even though it is stormy. The paragraph that you wrote about the sea in an old post was such a delight to read because I echo your thoughts about the sea and her womb-like nature :) x

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.

A RED DRESS FOR A DINNER DATE AT RESTAURANT ASIA ( SPLIT, CROATIA)

If you know me, you know that I'll grab every opportunity to don on a statement dress. Life is to short to wear boring dresses. Nothing is quite as dramatic as a statement red dress, am I right or what? I was planning on walking miles that night, so I paired my red dress with comfy shoes, a straw bag and a pink blazer (just in case if it gets windy). I'm a fan of wearing dramatic dresses with comfy shoes, it makes them stand out more- and it can make the outfit not only more comfortable but also fresh. I wore this red midi dress with ruffled sleeves for a date night in Chinese restaurant Asia in Split (HERE- one of my favourite places to grab Chinese food in the city). I had a lovely time dinning there with my significant other. I pretty much always order the same thing: home made noodles with veggies and dumplings. As always, the food was yummy. This restaurant is located in my old neighbourhood Split 3 (address: street Poljička cesta 39 ) and I definitely recommend paying it…

FASHION ILLUSTRATION FRIDAY:A SUMMER DRESS (STAEDTLER PENCIL WATERCOLOURS)

Yesterday I tore myself away from the laptop to make a new fashion illustration. It's been a while since I made my last fashion illustration. I've been spending an insane amount of time behind the screen lately (who ever said blogging is easy, right?) working on new blog posts. At some point yesterday, I decided to get up, grab some watercolour pencils and paint a new fashion illustration. Friday Fashion Illustration is not the most regular feature on my blog, but this summer at least I can try to change that. While I was working on my new fashion illustration, I test drove watercolour pencils from Steadler  brand (not sponsored). It's been ages since I last used watercolour pencils. I'll wait for a bit before I give this brand a detailed review, but for now I can say that I quite liked these pencil watercolours. So far so good, you might say. Steadler brand claims to be sustainable and  sustainability is important to me. It is something that applies to every aspect o…

SUMMER READING AND REREADING UPDATE: P. MERIMEE, F.S. FITZGERALD AND M. VUKOVIĆ RUNJIĆ

Hello, darlings! How have you been? I finally found some time to sit down and write this bookish post. I'll share some summer outfits with you today, but mostly I'll talk books. Yes, it's time for another reading and rereading update! Summer is such a perfect time to read, isn't it? I mean, don't get me wrong, I love to read all year around, but I still see summer as the ideal reading time. I wonder why is it so? Maybe it is somewhat on a subconscious level, seeing all those images of people reading on the beach.  Is it because summer is the traditional 'reading time' for many people? Is it because most people go on their vacation in the summer? Is it because most people use vacation time to catch up on reading? Is it the bookworm in me getting excited getting excited about making the most out of the 'reading season'? Is it the joy of reading in the open? It might be any or all of these things, but I do enjoy reading in summertime. How about you? D…
