I love participating in the Virtual Paintout each month. For January 2015, the location was Philadelphia, PA, chosen by Bill Guffey, creator and leader of the Virtual Paintout. It seems there is never enough time to virtually look around the chosen city or country. The Philadelphia area had many cites and different types of scenery. Lots of good subjects. I found an industrial location with tanks and stacks that I like to paint but I kept looking for something more descriptive of the city. I happened upon Philadelphia's Chinatown which had a beautiful, ornate gateway. It reminded me of the one I painted for the Virtual Paintout in Washington D.C. of the Chinatown gateway there. I like to try two pieces, one watercolor and one gouache. Looking forward to next month as always.
