I think Bill Guffey is a genius! Bill has started a blog of virtual plein air paintings composed of scenes found using Google Maps. Bills Blog Virtual Paintout featured Paris this month.
We logged into Google and toured the city using the street view feature.I stumbled upon the Carousel that is near the Eiffel Tower and fell in love.
I did my painting ACEO size (2.5 x 3.5") and will list it on EBay. Its shown here in a virtual mat.
