The Virtual Paintout for May 2015 was Cesky Krumlov in the Czech Republic. Bill Guffey chooses the monthly Virtual Paintout location from all over the world, anywhere Google Street View vehicles have covered. Artists virtually walk and drive around the chosen location to find their views to paint. Bill generously posts the artwork on his blog and on Facebook.
Since I won't be able to personally visit most of these locations I really enjoy browsing around virtually. I especially like looking around with a painting in mind. Cesky Krumlov is a small but amazing city with a beautiful river and castle. It also has a museum dedicated to painter Egon Schiele who lived there. The river that winds through the city appears to be very popular for kayaking and rafting. It was hard narrowing down the views to two to paint!
