Hi Marco.

It possible, but there will be a few stumbling blocks/gotchas.
1. Import the reference image. Fine.
2. Draw the outline with the pen tool. Fine.
3. Add the lines to break it into triangles then break that apart using Ungroup. Not possible.
Instead you'd have to draw the mesh as a reference object only then draw individual triangles using the pen tool. You may need to draw some guides to ensure snapping and move the nodes of a triangle after drawing it*.
4 Add gradient fills to the triangles: Fine.

So it's possible but will take a bit longer. If you do give it a try and butt against a problem you can't solve, just ask. I'll be about a few times over the weekend and will do what I can to help.

Hope this helps.
