Virtual Paintout - Estonia - June 2015


My Google Street View travels in Estonia led me to a colorful flower market near the gate to the old city in Tallinn.

"The flower market in Tallinn"
15x15cm, oil on canvas panel


I also checked what the guidebooks tell you to see in the country.  The Kadriorg Palace was high on their list:


Later, I was surprised to discover that its Estonian name,"Kadrioru Loss", means "Catherine's valley". Originally built for Catherine I of Russia, the building now houses an art museum.

Virtual Paintout - Greenland III - March 2015


"Ice Float"
6x9 inch, oil pastel on panel

Virtual Paintout - Greenland II - March 2015


There are practically no roads connecting villages in Greenland, so the Google team often resorts to travelling by boat. I thought I might try painting an iceberg for my second submission this month but in the end I think I prefer moving water. Here is the reference photo I found in "Street View" LINK

"Waterfall in Greenland"
5x7 inch, oil on canvas

Virtual Paintout - Greenland - March 2015


Greenland looks quite barren and icy in Google Street View but I found some nice colors in the images dating from September 2014 near Nuuk. 


I thought I'd exaggerated the reds but then googled "Images for Greenland in autumn" and was surprised to find similar reds in the photographs. The area is known for the strong colors of its autumn landscapes, which contrast so well with the backdrops of snow and ice. 


"Autumn in Greenland"
8x10 inch, oil on canvas
