Fun New Challenge

I found this great blog, another painting challenge called The Virtual Paintout The artist must use a view found through Google Street View as the reference for the painting or drawing. There is a different city postd every month, and you go explore that city using Google maps to find an image you are interested in! This months challenge was London England. I have always been intrigued by the London Eye, in fact I believe Sacramento should have a Sacramento Eye, wouldn't that be fun! So the London Eye is my subject.
Here is a photo of the street view from Google Maps and also my painting. It is 11x14 acrylic on gallery wrap canvas. I'd like to challenge all my artist friends to join in the fun! I sure learned my way around London!!

Be well, be kind. Tj.

What a unique style you have, TJ. I enjoyed your virtual paintout entry and looking through your blog. I see many women with my particular body style of late. Love the colors in your pieces too!

Hi TJ - Autumn Leaves & I are friends, too. I haven't gotten my London VPO in yet, it will be my 4th or 5th challenge with them. Welcome to it & I'll be looking forward to adding you to my challenge friends too!

I love your London piece - It is just too fun!
