For The Virtual Paintout Blogspot

The Virtual Paintout was in the Canary Islands this time.  It is really fun going around in the Google maps seeing other parts of the world :-).  I highly recommend it, it's almost as good as being there, almost hehe. I have a hard time with composition so this is very good for me.

The screenshot is to the left.


  1. Great job, Charlotte! Everyone is moving so quickly and I just have a rough sketch in place so far. 'Course, I don't work on a piece when I'm not sure I'm in the mood. A sure way to wreck what will not be a good end result at the best of it!

  2. Charlotte this is absolutely super! I like the way you have changed the colour of the road and sea so emphatically. I would much rather be on holiday in your painting than the screenshot! I am going to give this challenge a go on the weekend if I can stop getting car-sick travelling around these islands on the Google maps!

  3. thanks guys, I got sick and tired of it, so I'm not pleased with the blue road and lavender ocean, they were just plunked in and left. But oh well... Yeah the Canary Islands are a lot like California, sort of dry and brown... I thought I'd make them a little more "tropical". LOL.

    I like that traveling around, I almost feel like I'm there, it's fun getting off my island for awhile.

  4. he he, sorry to say that, but I guess you was travelling by boat. Your road seems a river.
    I like the way you painted the Canary I.
    Thanks for your visit.
    Best regards
