Virtual Paintout - Newfoundland - October 2016

This is for Bill Guffey's Virtual Paintout in Newfoundland.  I decided to try a very tiny canvas for a start. It looks like low tide in early summer at Port au Choix: streetview link.

Place(s) à l'Art - 14 August 2016 - two small paintings

In August, "Place(s) à l'art" is always held in Wolvendael Park during the Sunday morning "Concert au Parc". 

In my painting below, the artists have already set up their tables while people from the Commune d'Uccle are busy preparing the nearby concert venue.  

"Avant le Concert"
15x15cm, oil on canvas

At 13h00 it was time to pack up, so I moved to a park bench where I had a good view of the Pavillon Louis XV, currently a restaurant:

Virtual Paintout - Norway - August 2016

The Virtual Paintout is in Norway this month and it is not difficult to find a spot to paint there. This scene is from Hordaland county: link

After missing a few of these paintouts, I was anxious to get a quick start this month so I used a small canvas. I might come back to this later with a slightly larger one.

Finally got around to painting this view of the Sagrada Familia that I found in Google Street View: Link to Gaudi's BasilicaI'm almost done my version but sounds like the real one won't be finished until 2026 or even later.

Virtual Paintout - Scotland - January 2016

A Guid New Year!
Ay, the Virtual Paintout is in Scotland this month! There are several lovely views of this castle available on Street View so I think I'll move around to the other side next. Here's the link I used this time: looking northwest

To keep up my tradition of doing craft projects during the end-of-year holiday season, I'm making some greeting cards using ads collected from the shops.
