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.

Holiday in Dubrovnik

Hello!

Last weekend I visited Dubrovnik in Croatia for a short holiday. It was so much more beautiful than I had expected and I totally fell in love with the city.

I wanted to share you some photos.

After arriving in Dubrovnik, I took a cable car to see the entire view of the Old City of Dubrovnik. It was an amazing sight!

Then I took a walking tour on the city wall starting from the Pile Gate. Here are some photos of the view from the top of the walls.

On the second day I took a boat trip to Elafiti Islands, which are located in the northwest of Dubrovnik.

Beautiful islands of Kolocep, Lopud and Sipan

Dubrovnik is definitely one of my most favourite cities in Europe. If you haven’t visited, I’d highly recommend visiting 🙂
