I used to frequently participate in the Virtual Paintout monthly location where you use Google street view to check out the designated area and choose something to paint as if actually there. I have not done this for a long time even though I do look each month. Guess I have had so many other things going on the urge was not strong enough to participate - until now.
Septembers location was the Isle of Wight. I have lived in Australia for most of my life but was born in England and as children we would holiday every year in a caravan on the Isle of Wight. As this was half a century ago (wow) I must say I remember very little but as I wandered around using Google street view I just thoroughly enjoyed looking at places we probably did see but I was too young to recall. I just remember that Caravan. Here I am all these years later with a Caravan of my own!.
Painting size 11" x 15"
I settled my painting view on this little red letterbox which was sitting on a country lane. I took a bit of license with the tree species as the letter box was my focus but my instinct to make more Australian trees kept getting the better of me. I have included the map reference link if you would like to take a look at where I set up my little stool, easel and painted away for about 2 hours.
