The Virtual Paintout is back!!!

I am happy, no thrilled, that the VPO monthly challenge is active again. It was one of my favorite challenges! For those of you not familiar with VPO - it is a monthly challenge using Google street maps to explore & paint from. Each month, a new location is chosen by Bill (VPO admin). As artists, we roam the location, traveling up/down streets. Choosing a location can be difficult - some areas, like this month's Virgin Islands, offers so many options! 

Here are the links for the Virtual Paintout:

And here is the link to the original Google maps location for this:

This painting coincides with my recent "finding" of a landscape artist on youTube. Love watching his videos - instructive & interesting. Although he paints in oils, I was able to adapt some of this techniques to work with acrylics. I've given the link to one of his video's - check him out.
