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.

ONE MORE REASON TO VISIT BLIDINJE: MOUNTAIN CHURCHES

In my last post, I explained why nature park Blidinje is more than worthy of a visit. If you ask me, Bosnia and Herzegovina is such an underrated destination, for it hides so many stunning natural oasis and hidden gems. This nature park is one of them. Within the park itself, there is so much to see and do. Today I'll show you (once again) the mountain Church of Saint Elias The Prophet. Moreover, there is another church in this nature park I need to bring to your attention. That would be the church of Virgin Mary of the Snow (located in vicinity of Blidinje lake).

Nel mio ultimo post, ho parlato di Blidinje e vi ho spiegato perché il parco naturale Blidinje merita una visita.Secondo me, la Bosnia ed Erzegovina è una destinazione molto sottovalutata, perché qui potete trovate tante meravigliose oase naturale.Questo parco naturale è uno di questi posti bellissimi.All'interno del parco Blidinje, c'è tanto da vedere e da fare.Oggi vi mostrerò (ancora una volta) la chiesa di m…

WHAT TO WEAR FOR HIKING IN SUMMER? GORANCI VILLAGE & PLANINICA HILL

Today I'm back with another hiking outfit. Hiking in summer feels like an obvious choice, perhaps because we don't have to worry about the weather as much. The warm temperatures are luring us in the open. One thing I love about hiking is how it allows you to set your own pace. As a chronically ill person, that's very important to me. Living with an immune disease can be really tricky because you might feel fine one day and be unable to get out of the bed the next. Even the doctors themselves do not understand immune illnesses completely and nobody knows for sure what is causing them. All we seem to know is that immune illnesses are turning into an epidemic. Even living with them doesn't make them seem any less mysterious. The unpredictability of these illnesses makes planning regular work outs complicated. Hiking is a form of exercise that you can do even when you're not in top shape. So, I can be an appropriate form of exercise for most of us. What do you think? 

FASHION ILLUSTRATION FRIDAY: INSPIRED BY SUMMER STYLE

Time for another FASHION ILLUSTRATION FRIDAY! Today I'll share four fashion illustrations with you. The medium for all these four illustrations is coloured pencils on A4 regular printing paper.  The materials used weren't anything fancy, but I still wanted to share these. I drew two of these sketches without a specific reference. The outfits illustrated were a product of my imagination. However, the other two fashion illustrations were drawn with a reference. I was inspired by two fashion bloggers and I drew the summer outfits they were wearing. The illustrations are drawn in classical proportions, not elongated ones that I often use for fashion sketches. I do draw in different styles, sometimes the choice of style depends on the artistic effect I'm going to and sometimes just on  my mood (especially when I'm not doing anything particulary ambitious).
