VISIT NATIONAL PARK KRKA WITH ME!

Image
Krka National Park is a vast protected natural area located near Šibenik town. It covers a natural area of 109 km². Encompassing the most stunning sections of beautiful Krka river, this national park has a lot to offer. Krka national park is a wonderfully preserved natural area of exceptional ecological value. The ecosystems of Krka river are fully preserved here.  This natural park is open for tourist visits and is quite a popular destination.  I have first visited it as a kid, on an organized school trip and I remember being mesmerized by its beauty. This summer I visited it with my significant other. Scroll down to see  and read more.We arrived to Krka in the morning hours (but not too early, I remember that it was already hot). We bought the tickets, hiked down to the river and then we saw the museum and the stone houses, had a cup of coffee in one of the restaurants, took some photos and agreed on where to go. I wanted us to hike the park following the pathway so we did that and …

WHAT I WEAR ON THE GO: FIVE TRAVEL FRIENDLY OUTFITS

Image
According to the calendar, the summer has officially ended (Well, not really. I was corrected by Sheila , when I was writing this post there was still a week of summer ahead). As happy I am that Autumn is (almost) here, I'm still not ready to let summer go. I'm looking forward to Autumn season and I'm really happy and excited about the whole #backtoschool thing.

For example, you can try to incorporate some of your summer or vacation habits into your daily routine: go swimming at a local pool if you don't have sea near you and etc. If you saved your vacation time for now, lucky you. I honestly think this is best time to…

TWO NEW SEASCAPES: WATERCOLOUR PENCIL ON PAPER (JELSA, ISLAND HVAR)

Image
Today I'll show you two new landscape paintings I sketched while lounging on a beach in Jelsa (island Hvar, Croatia) and finished when I got back home. One of these paintings is more detailed while the other is a  more a sketch. When I finished the first one, my husband asked me why I don't do something with less details so I did another one. The view on these paintings is slightly different. They both depict the same place, but the perspective is different. On the first painting only Brac island is visible in the distance (i.e. background) while on the other you can also see mountain Biokovo and Croatian coastline in the distance. That is because my perspective was different while I was sketching. That is what I love about Croatia. You can move just twenty  meters and you'll get a  totally different perspective and panorama. Isn't that amazing? The medium for both of these seascapes is watercolour pencil on mixed art media paper (same brands that were linked in my rec…
