Music in pictures / Muzika u slikama

It is strange how nature has a different kind of vibe compared to urban areas. Since I’m a big fan of music, when I paint, I like to imagine the appropriate soundtrack for a scene that I’m painting, and for nature is almost always some kind of classical music.
To give an example, stormy sea sounds like The fourth movement of the New World Symphony, composed by Dvorak, mountain stream could sound like Moonlight Sonata (Beethoven) and of course there is Vivaldi’s “Four seasons” for any kind of landscape…
Opposite to that, city scenes have Jazzy, Blues or Pop Rock kind of feel.
That affects a lot on way how I paint something.

Because today I’m posting a painting of a stream , I wanted to share with you the feeling I had while creating this artwork.
The  movement and reflections with light bouncing of the surface gives me the sensation of calming and pleasant music. Every brush stroke is like a note in composition.

Zanimljivo je kako priroda izaziva drugačije osjećaje nasuprot gradovima. Pošto sam ja veliki ljubitelj muzike, često volim da upoređujem te osjećaje sa muzikom, kao da na neki način scena koju slikam ima svoju ličnu kompoziciju.
Kada je riječ o prirodi, ta kompozicija iz nekog razloga je skoro uvijek klasična.
Na primjer olujno more može da zvuči kao Dvořákova IX. simfonija “Iz Novog svijeta” (4 stavak), planinski potok kao “Mjesečeva sonata” (Ludwig van Beethoven), a naravno Vivaldijeva “Četiri godišnja doba” su prikladni za sve vrste pejzaža.
Nasuprot tome urbane scene uvijek odzvanjaju u Džez, Bluz ili Pop Rok ritmu, a to utiče na moj pristup slikanju.
Pošto danas postavljam sliku sa motivom potoka, htio sam da podjelim taj osjećaj koji sam imao dok sam slikao ovu sliku.
Osjećaj pokreta, reflekcije na površini vode i svjetlost koja pleše i kontsantno se mjenja kao tonovi u savršeno ukloplenoj kompoziciji.
Svaki pokret kista prati jedan ton.
