For the month of March 2014, I selected Dragon Bridge in Slovenia for the Virtual Paintout. For the Dragon I used pen and ink on 400 series mixed media paper.

I reworked an earlier sketch I did on the virtual paintout, and darkened it slightly via windows live photo gallery, its an old farm I sketched during 6/14/12 in Latvia, it was sketched on 18"x24" news print : )
The present location for the " virtual Paintout " is Cape Cod; I chose this one at Barnstable , along Sea View Ave.  For this painting I used pastels: hard, soft and pastel pencils + a charcoal pencil ( white) , on Strathmore Toned Tan 9"x12" paper. I liked the lookout on the building .

My september paintout for: The Virtual Paintout. This is in Holbaek, Zealand Island of Denmark . I call this one Horses, I thought the one close to the road was quite attractive so I did the painting in soft pastel with tinted pastel paper by Canson .

My sketch for August, The Virtual Paintout ; a little late with this one, I attempted a few rough sketches and finally came across this one in Oatlands, Tasmania . This store was in an older looking town with a flatbed truck which was harder than I thought being forshortened, the 1st try was sort of strange looking, I stopped with this one. I used color pencil after the sketch ; the paper was a 9"x12" Drawing Pad for muti use dry material , so I chose Prisma color pencil.

My 2nd post for July's "The Virtual Paintout," the 2 hens appeared to be having a bit of a chat and I couldn't resist painting them using a water brush and watercolor pencils on 90lb paper, 9x 12 : )~With the practice I'm getting, I'll have to take painting to the next level; out doors and see what I can accomplish : )~
