Here are a few of the sketches I did the past two weeks in Southern Croatia. The Dalmatian coast is stunningly beautiful. We had beautiful weather, the food and wine are great, and it’s still relatively inexpensive as far as European beach towns in August go.

  1. These are beautiful, Marc. I love the neutrals; like putty, only lush and creamy. Gorgeous.

  2. Wow, these are phenomenal Marc! Sunset on Korcula is stunning!
    I was also painting in Dalmatian coast this summer. It is certainly an inspiring place to be in as an artist.

  3. Great paintings, Marc. I love your graduations of grey and shadow. Are you back in Italy for a while now?
