I just returned from visiting Adriatic seacoast in Croatia. I spent nine days on Island Vis. This island used to be a navy base and was restricted for tourists. Now it is becoming know for its quiet and relaxed atmosphere, beautiful beaches, caves, old Venetian fortifications and towers, ancient hellenic walls, and how could I forget, amazing local vines.
I took with me my small pastel set and bigger full plein air set too. Out of practicality and ease I used the small set more often. This limited me in terms of color range, but it gave me opportunity to paint more often because I could cary the set anywhere. I am building a new portable set that is slightly bigger and will cary more pastels. I will post about it when it is finished.
This is the first of two posts from this trip.
