The Virtual Paintout 15!

The Virtual Paintout location for October was Lima, Peru.  I really enjoy participating in the Virtual Paintout every month, which I've done for over a year now.  Bill Guffey selects the location for the month.  It can be anywhere the Google Street View vehicles have covered.  Artists use Google Street View to find a virtual location to paint, just like on a non-virtual paint-out.  Bill has selected locations all over the world.  I'm always excited to see the location I'll be scouting for my views to paint.  I know I'll never get to see these beautiful countries and cities in person.  

Since the end of the month always sneaks up on me, I painted a small watercolor and a small gouache to finish by the deadline.  It seems the gouache pieces are hard to scan for the correct colors so I tried a photo which I think is more true to the actual color.  Can't wait to see what Bill has chosen for November!

  1. Hi Sherry, I saw these on Facebook VP page first and reconised them as yours straight away. You have your own lovely unique style and both your watercolours and gouache are great

  3. Both great. Interesting how the colors come out more intense on the scan. But I love your gouache work. Looking forward to your first "larger" gouache. :)
