Old Town Trebinje through the Trees

Derek Alvarez, Old Town Trebinje through the Trees, Hand Painted on the iPad using Procreate, 2018

We took a day trip to Trebinje, Bosnia from Hereceg Novi, Montenegro and it was one of my favorite days of my life! We got to see a couple of monasteries and sample their wine selection and we visited the walled Old Town, which dates to the 18th-century Ottoman period… we visited their outdoor market, full of fresh fruits and vegetables and we walked along the river, which is the inspiration for this painting. Everything about Trebinje seemed timeless, quiet, and peaceful and that’s what this painting captures.
