We spent a wonderful two weeks around Lake Garda and the Sud Tirol / Alto Adige, mostly hiking in the mountains. I had time to paint a few watercolours, mostly of mountains.

Travel Sketchbook Malcesine 2009

Another great hiking holiday.
Mountains, a clear lake and Verona just a bus ride away.
Goethe got into trouble sketching this castle. He was suspected of being a spy studying the fortifications. Nowadays sketching it only draws mild curiosity…

The trail on top of the ridge of Monte Baldo, as seen from the top Cima Delle Pozzette (2132m). Done during a pause while hiking.
