"Croatian Mountains" painting series

This is a series of Mountain paintings I started in the second half of 2017 and which where exhibited in the Lauba gallery in February 2018. In order to achieve a more personal aesthetics, I decided to do the paintings without using photo reference. Instead, I used a map to mark the most important peaks of that mountain, as well as on-location sketches from my hikes.
