I wanted to show you this painting’Dubrovnik’, which I painted after I was inspired by the trip I had in Dubrovnik, Croatia. Beautiful Adria sea and the old town really inspired me. It’s a place I would love to go back again.
I loved this picture I took in Dubrovnik, so I decided to paint based on this photograph, but I wanted to paint in rather abstract way.
Started drawing using colour pencils.
Painting the sky and the sea using Winsor & Newton drawing inks
Painting roofs in Daler Rowney Fluorescent Red acrylic paint. I like the striking colour
Painting the sea with acrylic paints. I used an ink roller to to give some texture.
First I started painting the lake.. I used Winsor & Newton Drawing Inks
Adding blue..it feels magical
Adding some silver ink
Using a cotton ball, I took some blue ink from the lake and started painting the sky
Dropping silver and yellow inks to paint the stars
Using pastel, I added some trees
Adding more blue ink to the lake
After that, I added little rabbits and a fox using pencil. Then I cut out a paper to create the shapes of a bird, attached them to threads, and suspended them from the top of the artwork, so that they look like floating/flying.
It’s a bit different style from what I usually do, but I enjoyed making this..hope you like it too!
