TRAVEL WITH MY ART #34: BOTA, VRBOSKA, ISLAND HVAR (CROATIA)
Hello dear readers and fellow bloggers! Time for another post in Travel With My Art series. More precisely, it's the thirty-forth post in this series. As you might know, Travel With My Art is a regular feature on my blog focused on my location and destination art.Started in 2020, Travel With My Art feature continues to inspired me to paint both places I have visited and places I would like to visit. Most of the 'travel' paintings I shared here on my blog are no longer with me, but thanks to technology you can still enjoy browsing them digitally.
This artistic feature on my blog enables me not only to share my paintings of places that inspire me, but to write about them as well. It's been a source of joy, let me tell you. Not that I haven't worked hard at it. To produce art on even remotely regular basis you have to be both consistent and hard-working. Sure, some of the paintings I shared are more quick sketches than anything else, but those tend to matter too (especially in the long run). On the other end of the spectrum are some paintings that have taken several months (and several hundred hours) to finish. So, it's been quite time consuming art journey, but I don't have any regrets. When do I find the time to make all these paintings? I don't know. I guess when you want something bad enough, you either find or make time for it.
What can I say about the painting I'm sharing today? It's a smaller piece. I have painted this seascape on an A4 mixed media paper using acrylic paints and one of our photographs from the archives. I often use my own photography (or that of my husband) for my paintings. This painting was done relatively quickly, in two sittings. It took me between 2- 3 hours (if I recall well) to finish it (and I did it over the span of two days). I wanted to challenge myself to paint more quickly. The result is a painting that (to me) looks like a mix of impressionism and realism. I'll talk a bit more about it (and about the place that inspired it), so scroll down.
