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!
