The Virtual Paintout is the one that gets me (makes me irritated) the most. I spend hours cruising around the map of whatever area they have chosen this month's challenge is the French Riviera) and I see car after car after car, street after street after street. Then I look at the paintings submitted for the challenge. Today there's one that has pots of flowers on a window ledge and the painter says she found it on the map and that it's the window of a church..........yeah? where!
A painting friend AnnMarie Thomas submitted a fun painting to this challenge. She actually found people on the docks, walking:
And I believe her when she says she found this. I was grumping around and she sent me two "shots" she'd found on her internet search so I guess it's possible but I have yet to find anything emminently paintable! It's a great way to waste wonderful time though, cruising around an area on a google map.
Here's one of AnnMarie's suggestions:
The challenge is for all of May so there's time for me to get myself up and painting!!
