Paris - Florence- Barcelona

Its a busy Virtual Summer for me. In May a group of us 'internet' artists used Google Maps to paint street scenes from Paris. I chose the Carousel. All of this cyber painting is organzied by Bill Guffey on his blog Virtual Paint Out

In June we moved to Florence Italy.
I was feeling a little confined in the streets of Florence so I moved up to the mountains and using the Google street view found a beautiful vineyard to paint,Via delle Corbinaie, Scandicci, Tuscany, Italia

My painting is 15 x 30" on stretched canvas

Close ups:




And today, I popped in on Bill to discover that the city for July is Barcelona. I'm sure I will spend hours exploring the city deciding where to 'set up' by easel.
I'll send you a postcard!

Love the subdued colors in this one, quite different from the usual Tuscany color palette.

What an awesomely beautiful painting! Proof of my continued "ingenue" role in the art world, but I honestly thought this was a watercolor piece until I scrolled down and saw the canvas and close up paint strokes. Are you using oils or acrylics? Thank you for leading me to the other website too. Maybe one day soon I can participate in these challenges!
