It can get really hot under the croatian sun. At the beach, one can really enjoy swimming and playing but we also had plenty of time to rest in the shadows of the pine trees. And then I had some time to sketch too.

Spending leisurely time at the beach is also perfect for people watching. it is absolutely marvellous to see how people mark small temporary   territories at the beach with towels and chairs. People read a lot at the beach but very many just stand by the sea and gaze in the distance.tanja simonic korosak_kozarica 2014 30tanja simonic korosak_kozarica 2014 31

The sound of cicadas and children playing in the water  and pine fragrance fill the air. It is so hard to sketch all these shadow patterns and lots of fun too!

Even when one day seemed that the early morning rain would turn into a cloudy afternoon and we decided to visit the city of Zadar, on the arrival the sun was out again and we were searching for some shady corners where I could also sketch. I sketched St. Donatus (on the left), an 9th century church – the most important cultural treasure of Zadar.

I managed to sketch some of the places where we had delicious local food, and some lovely red wine too.
