It's the 21st. consecutive month I've participated in the Virtual Paintout! The location for April 2014 was Liverpool which was very exciting to look around using Google Street View. What a beautiful and very busy city. And we know there are Mersey Ferries from the old '60's song but sadly the Google Street View car didn't go near any docks. I found some fabulous industrial areas with tanks and fog but decided on some city views. Some views I liked and thought might work for a downtown painting just had too much traffic and many busses. I happened on a red telephone booth and had to try a gouache to include it. For my second piece, I painted a watercolor as the Google car headed toward a tunnel which I haven't had the chance to try before. Looking forward to next month's location!
