The March location for the Virtual Paintout is Vilnius, Lithuania. It was rainy or overcast over much of Vilnius when the Google Street View car came through so when I finally spotted this building with dappled sunlight and the twin tree, I decided that would be my subject. I toned my panel with Cad Red Dark, just for fun. Here’s a progress shot (below) showing the red background I started with. I didn’t wait for the red to dry, since that takes days here, but just went at it with thicker paint from the beginning. I liked the effect of the red under tone on the finished painting.
This painting will be available soon in my Daily Paintworks gallery.Follow me here:
