Virtual Paintout - Utah - September 2015

I didn't realise there were so many national parks in Utah. I look forward to seeing the paintings of all that spectacular scenery this month at the Virtual Paintout!

Above is the road leading into "Zion National Park": Link to Reference Photo. I used the older April 2008 Street View shot because there was more contrast and I liked the car loaded down with bicycles.

Virtual Paintout - Estonia - June 2015

My Google Street View travels in Estonia led me to a colorful flower market near the gate to the old city in Tallinn.

I also checked what the guidebooks tell you to see in the country.  The Kadriorg Palace was high on their list:

Later, I was surprised to discover that its Estonian name,"Kadrioru Loss", means "Catherine's valley". Originally built for Catherine I of Russia, the building now houses an art museum.

After the Parcours d'Artistes

Here is my "Chateau de Wolvendael" painting in its new home (bottom right).

Promenade dans le Payottenlaan

"Bruxelles vue du Payottenlaan"
18x24cm, oil on canvas 

This is based on a photograph taken in Sint-Pieters-Leeuw, looking towards Drogenbos.

At the time, I painted a smaller canvas on location: a view of the nearby yellow water tower. It was October and cold out so I couldn't stay there too long but the tiny canvas came in handy later as a color guide for the studio painting.
