Virtual Paintout - Greece!


The Virtual Paintout 24 means I've been participating for two years!  The Virtual Paintout for July 2014 was all of Greece.  Wow, kind of overwhelming with so many beautiful views.  The Google Street View vehicles hadn't been everywhere but certainly photographed many wonderful locations.  The thing I noticed most in Greece and the Greek Islands was the gorgeous skies and clouds.  And all those white buildings are so charming.  I chose a view on the island of Mykonos and another on Santorini.  Both views include a pretty, colorful dome.  A pop of color amid all the pale structures.  

Somehow I'm late with this post and tomorrow I'm off to a week-long workshop with Iain Stewart.  I'm very excited to be taking this workshop and hoping to get another blog post done!

  4. It's quite hard to choose a location to paint from Mykonos and Santorini ! It's true that Greece has a special light and sky and sea colors that are not so evident on the photos. I like both renditions. You now have to come and paint on location Sherry !! :-)
