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.

  1. I like this piece very much--it has a Japanese print feel to it. It was fun to click over from Virtual Paintout to see that you are a friend of Roz and you get to hang out with her in person! She's so funny and smart!

  2. Beautiful image, very graphical.
