At the beginning of 2017 I became the volunteer Artist-in-Residence @ Arlington Court National Trust Devon - Watch out for my posts about it.

Revisiting The Virtual Paintout

I haven't been a contributor to The Virtual Paintout for some time now, but decided to join in their location this month of Greenland.  It's useful having Google Street View to travel via and find places to paint.

Here's my painting of a blue house against a blue sky...

    1. Thanks Judy, the rocks were quick and easy to do. Added three colours one on top of the other and then scrapped out =Rocks :-)

  3. My favorite color. I like the color of your sky better. Much more vibrant than Google views

  8. this is weird - i thought i commented on this the other day - ...it's beautiful and I wanted to say that i took a trip of our mountain and photographed a cabin in the snow that looks just like this almost. I think after seeing this, i might try one from my photograph. i love the way the blue pops. nice job.

    2. i came back to see your blue house - i think I'll try the blue house I mentioned today. If I have time that is! When and if I get it painted I'll post the photo just to show you how similar it is both in color and sitting up on a hill like this.
