Virtual Paintout - Valparaiso, Chile

This month, the website Virtual Paintout has chosen Valparaiso, Chile as our painting location. One visits the city virtually using Google Maps' little yellow man to view city scenes from the streets. You travel around until you see something to paint or draw. I was introduced to this painting opportunity by my friend Mike Bergen , another artist that participates in virtual paintouts. It's pretty cool that Google has given artists permission to use Street View for painting references - Thanks Google! Here's the painting I did from this Google map location: 

It's 4x6 inches - watercolor with pastel on paper. "Abrazo, Valparaiso, Chile"

Unframed - it is available for $25.00 plus $5.00 shipping and handling.
