Urban Fashion Illustration: Pretty in Pink ( A Brunette in a Pink Dress)

To start with, here comes  my new fashion illustration of the day. A Brunette in a Pink Dress is a mixed media painting. For most part it's a watercolour painting but I added some finishing touches with the coloured pencils. The painting was inspired by Autumn, the beautiful season we are currently enjoying. If you look closely, you'll see that I've also painted puddles. A bit of the black watercolour  paint I is spilling from the illustrated cowboy boots, but that's how imagined it. 


Mixed Media Fashion Illustration 


As the title suggests, the painting depicts a girl wearing a pink dress. There is a bit of layering going on. What is she wearing over her pink shirt dress? Why, a warm vest. Autumn is all about layering. Our illustrated girl also choose to wear dark brown tights and black cowboy boots. She is also holding a bouquet of flowers. How to Wear a shirt dress in Autumn? This would be my illustrated answer. Pair it with leggings or tights and cowboy boots, and you've got yourself an unique and pretty outfit. I do like how this fashion illustration turned out. I was going for a slightly artistic feel to it, with a blurry urban background. I must say I'm quite happy with how it turned out.




How is Autumn treating you? Are you ready for Winter? Today it's so sunny that Winter seems far away, but I'm sure it'll arrive in a heartbeat. At the moment, I'm enjoying this picturesque  season (whenever  I'm not terribly ill that is) and one of the things I love about this season is the ability to pick wild pomegranate. Yes, you've read that right.  There are even some wild pomegranates growing near my house. In fact, a pomegranate is one of the symbols of Herzegovina.  One of the definite advantages of living in a Mediterranean climate is being able to buy (or pick) all kinds of delicious fruits. Scroll down to see a cute tiny pomegranate I picked today. 


Because I quite liked this painting, I made it available in my Zazzle shop in the form of various products. I like the idea of fashion illustrations printed on clothing items. If you recall, I ordered one such tote bag this Summer and was quite happy with it. I ended up gifting it to my aunt. It was certainly interesting to see my fashion illustrations being worn in this form. I already wrote about this and the designing/customizing process that many online shops offer, so I won't repeat myself too much. It is also available as an original painting in my shop.

I also added some of my new fashion paintings to my Redbubble shop (for example here). That would be all for today. As always, thank you for all your lovely comments. One more thing.  Bellow you can also see the sketching process (for those of you who are interesting in the making of  process of this fashion illustration). As I already mentioned, I sketched this fashion illustration with pencil and then I filled it with watercolours. Take care and have a great weekend!

  2. Dear Ivana, I hope you are as well as possible ... and it is wonderful you enjoy nevertheless fall. The woman in the illustration you how here today looks exactly like you, do you know this and was this your intention? In each case I love this look with pink as I'm always love pink. And I'm really impressed you can pick pomegranates near your house. I love pomegranates and saw the first time in my live a pomegranates tree with fresh fruits in Sardina.

    1. thank you Rena. I honestly didn't notice that it might look like me, but I haven't used a reference for this one so it's possible. I think artists often paint themselves unconsciously just because we are all familiar with our facial features.

  3. Hey Ivana,
    what a great illustration, again ;)
    I adore how dynamic this one is, it feels like you are telling a story with this fashion illustration. Where is this woman going? And again, I love her outfit ;) Can't get enough of pink looks.

    1. Thank you so much! Maybe she's coming back from or going on a date. Or perhaps she has picked up those flowers for herself?

  15. What a lovely illustration. I think you managed to successfully create the artistic feel you were going for and the outfit depicted is very fresh and feminine. How lucky for you to be able to enjoy wild pomegranates now. My autumn has been busy but good. I was a little sad to see October coming to an end since it is one of my favorite months.

  24. YAY! As always I adore to see your illustrations and in this case the process, you're just an artist Ivana :)

    I also like that you do not limit yourself to the simple tools and that you go beyond by adding textures, materials and other stuff that just improve your already good work. Love her expression and the way she's moving with the bucket of flowers as the main focus item!

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…

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…

A FEMININE SUMMER STYLING FOR A SUNSET IN SPLIT CITY

As promised, I'm back with another travel post about Split city. What is summer without beach sunsets? What is the best way to experience sunset in Split city? Personally, I would always suggest a sunset with a sea view. If you ask me, when it comes to sunsets - the beach is the place to be. Nothing quite tops a beach sunset, does it? The way the sun seems to sink into the sea and set it ablaze. There is nothing quite like it. Experiencing sunset in Split city is definitely something I must recommend.Imagine a  magnificent view of the coast topped by impressive mountains that meets the Adriatic sea with its beautiful islands in the distance. No wonder that Split has the most amazing summer sunsets. 
In my previous post, you had the chance to see the city centre and ACI Marina in Split, today I'll show you Trstenik beach, Zenta Marina and Firule beach. There are many lovely beaches in Split city and the great thing is that most of them are located one next to the other, so you…
