18×24″ acrylic on gesso board
This is a street down at the Jersey shore, painted from a photo I took a few years ago. It isn’t exactly a street, more a row of beach cottages leading to the ocean. Take off your shoes, it is just a few steps to the water!
This is a little 5×5 inch painting in acrylic on gessobord.
Each month the Virtual Paintout travels to a different location in the world using Google street maps to find a spot to paint. I think it is a lot of fun to look at different places and virtually turn around looking for something of interest. Majorca has a lot of beautiful places. I was dreaming of actually being there! This is a small format piece–4×6 inches, oil on unstretched canvas. I taped off a 5×7 inch piece and thought it would look great matted and framed under glass in a ready made frame. It is painted entirely with palette knife.
After a blizzard of two feet of snow, a summer seascape seems like just the thing to paint! This is an acrylic on 11×14 gessobord.
Virtual Paintout is a site that travels virtually to a different location in the world each month. Scotland is January’s location and artists are invited to look at Google Street Maps and choose a spot to paint, almost like en plein air. You can click on the map and using the yellow pegman, turn around and crop and adjust your view, or even take a virtual stroll down a side street to see if there is something even more beautiful to paint there. I chose this location in North Kessock, Scotland, called Old Mill. To me, it is so charming. Take a look at all the submissions at Virtual Paintout, and if you are a visual artist, maybe find a spot to make a painting. Google encourages artists to use their images. virtualpaintoutblogspot.com
