Calendar for January 2017

Oh my, it's already Christmas and end of the year in a week... how time flies... I was very busy all year and the year really flown by so fast. In the next few days I'll do a little analyzing of my goals and achievements that did or didn't came true this year. There will also be some new year's resolutions, but not too much, I think :D Finally I can say my year was quite OK. Of the things connected to my art it was great I had two solo exhibitions, I led two mixed media workshops, I attended three painting courses and had several art journaling presentations. I must admit I also had a very hard time in November, when my depression kicked in and I stumbled upon a huge blockage, but when I was

Sisters

Toni Burt's class Luminous Soul inspired me to use a photo of my sister and I as a reference. Last year we had our first sister weekend which meant the two of us went to Kras and visited some of regia's interesting places and we had a great time together. This selfie that we took at Duino Castle is a beautiful reminder of that time. ........... Tečaj Luminous Soul, ki ga je pripravila Toni Burt me je vzpodbudil, da sem kot referenco uporabila fotografijo na kateri sva s sestrico. Lani sva si privoščili prvi skupni vikend, kar je pomenilo, da sva šli na Kras in oblezli vsa mogoča zanimiva mesta v tem koncu sveta. Imeli sva se super in ta selfie, ki sva ga naredili na gradu Devin, je dragocen

Luminous soul by Toni Burt

As you might have noticed, I started following Toni Burt's class Luminous soul. I can gladly tell that I love the course and the way Toni explaines the process of creating her sketchy style portraits with oil sticks (not oil pastels). ........... Kot ste mogoče že opazili sem začela slediti tečaju Luminous soul, ki ga je pripravila Toni Burt. Z veseljem lahko povem, da mi je všeč na kakšen način Toni podaja znanje in v tečaju res uživam. Tečaj je namenjen ustvarjanju z oljnimi paličicami (ki niso isto kot oljne pastele). You can learn more about Toni on her web site, you can also join the class. Here are just some of her works for you to get taste of her art. You can also check her Facebook

A portrait of a friend

I'm still following Toni Burt's class Luminous Soul and this is my homework for lesson three. If you missed my last two posts, you can see more of her work on her web site. Here is the process of my creating mixed media painting and scanned painting (hmm, I don't seem to find it, so this blog will be incomplete for a while) at the bottom of the page. As a reference photo I took an old photograph of a friend. I didn't try to follow her resemblance exactly, I just wanted to get basic features. I must say I had some problems because my background paper was distracting her facial features - a thorn paper runs exactly through the middle of her face. But anyway it was a lesson to be more careful w

Happy painting again

Now that I've started painting again, I just can't stop. I'm still following Toni Burt's class Luminous Soul and this is my homework for lesson two. If you missed my last post, you can see more of her work on her web site. Here is the process of my creating of second lesson inspired mixed media painting and scanned painting at the bottom of the page. As a reference photo I took a photograph of Sansa - a character from Game of Thrones. I didn't try to follow her resemblance exactly, I just wanted to get basic features. Zdaj ko sem končno začela spet slikati, enostavno ne morem nehati. Še vedno sledim tečaju Toni Burt z imenom Luminous soul in to je moja domača naloga za drugo lekcijo. Če ste

How I overcome my painting block

or A little help from my friends I've been having this painting block for a month now and I was very sad about that. I had this wish to paint, but just couldn't start. During that time I've tried all sorts of encouragements you can find on Youtube or on different artists' pages, but still nothing. I just felt tired and unmotivated and totally without any inspiration. Then I noticed that one of my FB friends Toni Burt is having an on-line course called Luminous Soul. Since I really admire her art, I didn't think much, I just applied. And, halelujah, she inspired me to start again. She's got kind of sketchy style and I love the way she creates her portraits and her way of her teaching and expl
