February 2014 was the 5th anniversary of the Virtual Paintout, created and hosted by Bill Guffey. This was the 19th Virtual Paintout I've participated in. The location was Washington D.C. and it was such a fun place to look around using Google Street View. As always, it's hard to stop browsing and decide on a couple views to paint. Washington D.C. has so many varied areas from government buildings to charming old neighborhoods. A hard decision! And there was also a gorgeous Chinatown gateway I had to try when I saw it. In my other piece I included a bicycle leaning against a sign post...my first bike.
