South Bohemia, Czech Republic



I painted this for Bill Guffey's Virtual Paintout. The idea is to use Google street map, snatch a screen shot and use it for a painting. Bill selected the Czech Republic as the location for May. I actually combined two views of the ice cream shop for the painting. I love looking at all of the great paintings and drawings at Virtual Paintout. I am anxious to "travel" again in June.

Welcome, Sheryl! It's great to have you here. Your painting is great, I especially like the green of the ice cream and the man's bag...

Thank you for the welcome! The green ice cream really stood out in the google view so I decide to go with it. When I found the sign for the shop on a side street view and limetka was one of the three flavor choices it had to stay!
