Outfit of the day (Split city, an old stone house)

I have another quick post for you, a post in which I'll be sharing a few photographs of my dear Split city and an outfit of the day. I already wore a similar outfit here . This short black coat is a favourite of mine, probably because it is so easy to style. This time I paired it with a red hoodie for extra warmth.

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, t
