Ok, well I think I've finished this one... I'm calling it done! The Virtual Paintout, a city is chosen for the monthly challenge, this month was Lisbon Portugal. Each artist must use a view of the city found using Google Street View as the reference for the painting or drawing. I virtually walked around Lisbon and found this little street where it seemed every window had laundry hanging, so I call this "Lisbon Laundry" it is acrylic on 24 x 18 gallery wrap canvas.
Here is my painting:
And here is the photo of the street from google maps:
I changed the angle a little, and made the walls much brighter! You know me and color. I've always thought to do a whole series of laundry hanging in the wind. I have been asked to participate in a group art show in November called Urban Landscapes at Vox Studios in Sacramento. I believe I am going to run with this theme and do laundry hanging in urban settings. My dear friends Carolee and David are in Italy right now and have already captured a couple of images for me to use. I am very excited and appreciate it! Thank you both and I hope you are having a great time!!!
That's it for tonight, off to bed... be well everyone! Tj.
