Dreams of Sardinia by DanielaIvanova Dreams of Sardinia by DanielaIvanova
Photoshop CS3, Intuos 3, too many hours.

Started as a color study with a completely different color palette but in the middle of it we went on a vacation in Sardinia. The change from cold pale Germany was so shocking! The buildings with their peachy, sandy colors and the vivid green water must have impressed me too much because when I returned to the painting it took on new colors and a completely different concept. 

The flower is an oleander, a beautiful blooming shrub that grows there abundantly. It's one of my favourite plants even though it's poisonous.

Great one! I love the colour composition, the face expression and jellyfish are among my favorite living creatures. It's almost as if it was shining on your drawing. Great job!

Thanks! It was quite the change from dreary cloudy Germany. We were in Cagliari but made a couple day trips to Chia and Villasimius.

Oh, I've been to Chia! It's one of my favourite Sardinian beaches. I don't remember much because I was very little, but I can recall the colours perfectly. :heart:

Oh man, the colors were BEAUTIFUL! The water is this gorgeous aquamarine color. We went to this really small beach called Spaggia Cippolla which was right next to this huge popular beach but much much more attractive. It felt great to be in that secret, not so popular spot. I'd definitely visit again. And the colors and designs of the buildings in Cagliari, too, were really inspiring.

Well, yeah: the drawback of Sardinia is how such beautiful beaches often become overcrowded. We've got the same problem in my hometown, Alghero, and the nearby Stintino: both have these breath-taking beaches with soft, white sand and crystal-clear water (especially Stintino: I might be a bit biased towards Alghero, but Stintino is hands down the most beautiful beach I've ever visited), but there's so much crowd!

:icondanielaivanova:
DanielaIvanova Featured By Owner May 9, 2018
Isn't Alghero in the northern part of Sardinia? I considered that part for a vacation, too, but everyone says it's more crowded and more expensive than the south part. But the beaches... well, soft-sand beaches are always super comfortable but the kind of cliff-y, half sand half rocks kind of beaches have their appeal, too. If anything they are very picturesque.

Alghero is in the north-western part of Sardinia, while the wildly expensive part is in the north-east. It's not exactly cheap, but nothing out of the ordinary. :D
And it has both soft sandy beaches and rockier ones. For instance, I shot Zodiac Black in a rocky one because I needed a cliff to put the camera on so it be directly above me. ;)

:icondanielaivanova:
DanielaIvanova Featured By Owner May 11, 2018
Oh, I see. I'd love to visit it, too, sometime. We had the chance to travel along the southern coastline and everywhere was incredibly beautiful. My man doesn't really like going on the same place twice but once we came back he started asking me when we will go back again :D
Wait, really? You didn't have anyone holding the camera? I can't even imagine what the setup must have looked like :O
