November Virtual Paintout
This is my November submission to the Virtual Paintout, a blog hosted by Bill Guffey that uses Google maps and street view as a method of "plein air" painting around the world. This month's paintout is in Rio de Janiero. My chosen subject was a woman walking down the street with a parasol. I am not really happy with how the colors turned out in the scan, they seem faded a bit when compared to the original. I need to work on the settings for future scans. I have an additional view picked out and I am hoping to get to it before the end of the month.
