TRAVEL WITH MY ART #16: BAY VEPRINOVA, ISLAND HVAR
Hello dear readers and fellow bloggers. Today I will reveal a new painting. It's a seascape and the medium used is acrylic paints on mixed media paper. Can you guess what inspired it? Why, again it's island Hvar. Yes, it's time for another post in TRAVEL WITH MY ART SERIES. As the title would imply, I started this series so that I could take you places with my art. Sharing photographs is a great thing, but actually painting a certain location somehow feels more special. I'm often told I have a good eye for taking photographs, but I'm definitely more a painter than a photographer. So, sharing my paintings and illustrations of different places seems like a lovely thing to do. Besides, you guys seems to enjoy them too. My last post was devoted to bay Lozna on island Hvar. This post will be devoted to bay Veprinova. So, let's get started.

Veprinova bay is lovely. Like most bays of southern side of island Hvar, it's a peaceful green oasis. A fun fact- it was named after wild hogs. Vepar in Croatian means a wild hog and 'veprinova' is an adjective signifying- belonging to wild hogs. Sure enough, we encountered a wild hog in vicinity. For more photographs, visit the post bellow.
THE PROCESS OF MAKING THE PAINTING
As usual, the first thing I did was to find a reference photograph. My official blog photographer (aka husband) took this photograph. I omitted myself from this painting because I wanted to concentrate just on the beach, the waves and the gorgeous pine trees. It took me quite some time to finish this one. I'm not sure have I got it right, but generally speaking I like it. My style is a bit more loose in this one, I feel. This painting seems to be more about splashes of colour then anything else, but I like its vibrant energy.
WORK IN PROCESS PHOTOS - I only have a few 'WIP' photos to share.
