TRAVEL WITH MY ART #22: MAKARSKA TOWN, CROATIA
Hello there! Happy Sunday! How's October treating you so far? Here in Dalmatia (Croatia), it's rather warm and sunny. There are still tourists around and who could blame them? Now is probably the best time to enjoy one's vacation, especially if you don't like the crowds and like to have your personal space to yourself. You could say it still feels like summer, especially mid day when the sun is so strong. The painting I will share with you today is also bathed in sunshine. Yes, I have another painting to share with you. A few months ago, I started an art feature with the goal of sharing my paintings and illustrations of different places. So far, I have painted more than 22 paintings and took you to many places along the way, most of them located in Croatia (because that's the area I know best) but you never know what might inspire me next. Today I will share another TRAVEL WITH MY ART POST. I shared one yesterday, but I feel like continuing on an art note, so why not? Let me tell you about this new painting of mine.
This town is a short drive away from the Split, albeit this might depend on the traffic. During the summer, the traffic might be heavy and the drive not so close. Like most Dalmatian cities, Makarska has got some gorgeous historical buildings and fantastic views. One thing that is really eye-catching is the the impressive mountain range that tops it. If you decide to visit it, please keep in mind all the things you should when heading into mountains. Because of the sea vicinity, some people don't take the altitude of this mountains seriously and do not prepare for it. If you're visiting the mountains, dress appropriately and warmly.
