TRAVEL WITH MY ART #20: BEACH SOLINE, VRBOSKA, ISLAND HVAR (CROATIA)
Hi there lovely readers, blog visitors and/or fellow bloggers! Today I have a new landscape painting to share with you. This time I painted beautiful Vrboska beach on island Hvar. As some of you might remember, TRAVEL WITH MY ART is a regular series on my blog where I share my paintings of different locations and places. My last painting was inspired by Sućuraj on island Hvar. This time I was once again inspired by island Hvar, but this time the location is different, it's beach Soline. I painted Vrboska before, but not this beach.
Now, a bit of information about this painting. The medium for this painting is acrylic paints on paper. This 'Soline beach' painting is not as ambitious as the last canvas 'Sućuraj' painting I shared (HERE). That last 'Sućuraj' painting was bigger, more detailed, intricate and labour intensive. In contrast, this acrylic painting was done on paper in A4 format is. So, it's not a large painting. I worked on it for two days (maybe 5- 6 hours in total). I did my best to capture the sea more quickly but still have some details present. I've been known to spend plus 200 hours working on some seascape painting, so six hours doesn't feel like a lot of time. Sometimes it is nice to make a simpler and quicker painting. Sure, the result is not as magical as those 'time and labour intense' paintings, but it is still nice.
I used my own photographs as a reference (and also those taken by my husband) for this painting. The art supplies (professional acrylic paints and mixed media paper) used to make this painting are both by Royal Talens brand. Not that I'm collaborating with this art brand or anything like that, they just happen to be the brand of choice of the local art gallery in Michelangelo (where I do all of my shopping).
