A few sketches I did while hiking in and around Malcesine and Monte Baldo.
Another great hiking holiday.
Mountains, a clear lake and Verona just a bus ride away.

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.
Clouds moving in at sunset.
Watercolour and gouache in a small Moleskine.

I started carrying a small watercolour kit with me when hiking.
I’m fascinated by mountains, by the way they keep changing colour. Even though they are immobile, they seem alive, like giant waves of stone.
