Abstract Seascape’Dubrovnik’

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.

Painting process

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.

Abstract seascape

Hope everyone had a nice weekend:) It was very sunny and warm here in London yesterday.

Based on the same photograph I shared you yesterday, I painted another picture in acrylic in more abstract way.

I recently read a book called ‘Painting Realistic Abstracts‘ by Kees van Aalst

and also a book called ‘Abstract Art Painting: Expressions in Mixed Media‘ by Debora Stewart

I found both books inspiring, and they encouraged me to paint more expressively.
