This is the scene in Barcelona, Spain that I found on Google maps.
It is on the boardwalk on Calle de Sante Maria and Calle de Prim. The Mediterranean is on this fellow's left. I imagine that Barcelona is colorful and modern and I approached the painting with that in mind.
The idea of using Google maps to do a virtual paint out is Billy Guffy's. To see other Barcelona scenes visit his blog here
Paintings from my virtual visit to Florence is here and Paris here
I am really enjoying being an armchair tourist and cant wait to see where we go in August!
