"November"

This illustration is dedicated to this November.
This kind of composition gives a lot of freedom but the illustration didn't go easy this time.
I wanted less of blue, more colorful palette, tried to combine different emotions and.. as you see the Big Blue wins always!

I used Winsor&Newton and White Nights watercolours. Surprisingly them make a good team. White Nights have mild tone of beige that in Winsor&Newton are all strong tones.
43cm x 53 cm (17" x 21")




And here goes the work in progress:


















Have a great December !!!

PESTO (illustration) for your pasta

These days I felt that a Pesto illustration is a must for this end of November. Because when is cold I always want a plate of pasta, and because I love pesto.

I prepare it every time with fresh ingredients and never buy it from the super market.
There's a classic recipe of Pesto alla Genovese, but for a mild taste I use half parsley, half basil. Is easy enough to prepare if you have 20 min and a mixer :)

Also, this illustration and others will be available for sell from 3 December.                                          


I used Winsor&Newton watercolors and Fabriano Artistico Traditional White 12"x18" paper for this illustration. And some touch of Kooh-I-Noor brown ink.

Morning(Cat) in the Garden

Last work I finished these days. Will be possible to find it in the shop till December.



I was inspired by mediterranean gardens, especially succulents from my friend, Antonina, little garden.

October is a melancholic month

October for me is like a little remember note about winter.
When there's no book project on the way, this period becomes so slow((
and I jump between illustration, sketches and preservation. Is preservation time also :)


My inspiration for now:




Enjoy:)

Brela and sea magic

It was long time I didn't "visit" properly my blog, and there's an excuse for it.
I had a great time with beautiful project all these months, and hope to show soon (2015) illustrations I made for this book. I hope it will happen till May 2015. For now I only can say it's a book about enormous love and passion for all beautiful birds.

After 3 months of work I had an occasion to visit again Croatia - a little paradise in the middle of Europe. Especially Brela, where our friends live, is a nice place to find silence and fantastic pine woods in front of the sea. In Croatia you can find all together - mountain, pines, palms, that mervelous sea you'll never forget and kind people.

I had five days for charging batteries.


Palms, cactus and mountains - some pics from Tenerife Islands or Madeira?.. is the same Croatia :)
