Virtual Paintout - The Azores!

I've participated in the Virtual Paintout for almost a year.  Still having a great time searching for a view to paint using Google Street View.  Bill Guffey created the Virtual Paintout.  Each month he chooses a location the Google cameras have covered for the Street View.  Artists choose a view to draw or paint and Bill posts all of the submissions on his blog and on Facebook.  It's so much fun to see what the artists have found to paint and the variety of painting styles.

For June 2013 the location was the Azores, nine islands off the coast of Portugal.  It seems like I spent even more time than usual looking around.  I painted two small watercolors.  Looking forward to where the July location will be!
