Markaska and friends

Today I finished a water sketch of Markaska I began in Croatia.
And here are two postcards I painted this week- one of a local sheep, the other the Riva in Split, Croatia.

National Theater, Croatia

Drawings from Zagreb

Working more in my Croatian sketchbook.
This is St Catherine's church.
Next I have a drawing of St Marks church.
In real life the roof is a colorful combination of red, white and blue.   The guards changed while our tour was nearby, so I sketched some of them.

Paintings of Croatia

Here are some of my sketchbook paintings from my trip
to Croatia.  These are primarily from Zagreb, I sketched them on the spot and added color later.
This is the first drawing on my book- it is a slide from the Contemporary Art Museum in Zagreb.
This is the funicular, which we took to the top of Gradec.

Then looking down.
A view in Kaptol.

One of the parks, featuring a Bolle fountain.

Drawings from Croatia

I've been in Croatia for the last week. So far I've mainly made line drawings but tonight I sketched the church of St Blaise over an under painting.
There were break dancers which I can always add in later!

Here are two more pages- a line drawing of a bust of the father of the Croatian language by Metrovich and a cat I saw in a window this morning with traditional Croatian decorations.
