Lady in Red, Savar, Bangladesh - A Virtual Paint Out

Lady in Red, oil, 9x12, Savar, Bangladesh


I enjoyed the virtual trip to Bangladesh and found another scene I wanted to paint. A fellow traveler suggested that I title the painting, "Lady in Red", so I did. This is painting #2 from the "Virtual Paint Out" trip for February.  See previous post for more information.



This painting is available on my Ebay page.

Sangu River, Bangladesh - A Virtual Paint Out


Sangu River, Bandarban, Bangladesh, 8x10, oil

While roaming through Facebook the other day, I found a very interesting art group. Artist, Bill Guffey, has organized a Virtual Paint-Out. Very month this group of artists travel, via their computer, to a designated location. Using Google Maps Street Views only, they explore the area and each artist finds a spot to paint. The idea is to “walk around” the streets using Google Street Views as if you were actually there with the painting group looking for that ideal spot to set up your gear and paint. You then post your finished painting to his blog with a link to your reference. For more information check out, www.VirtualPaintOut.blogspot.com. In the past six years the group has painted all over the world. January’s destination was Philadelphia, PA.

February’s location is Bangladesh. I found that Google Maps Street Views are limited for this region, but it was interesting to explore the country. All artists are invited to join. I think it will be great fun and I am looking forward to mixing geography with my art. Thank you, Bill Guffey.


I wonder where we will be traveling to next month?
