July Virtual Paintout

This is a stylized painting of a photo taken by the Google truck on the Isle of Jersey in the English Channel - this month's destination for the Virtual Paintout. Parts of Jersey are green and manicured and parts are a little wilder but to me the most charming feature of the landscape is that there are tiny lanes everywhere that corkscrew through the dense island foliage. I hope to have captured some of that feeling here. It is 4 " x 4" painted in oil on a linen covered board. If you would like to purchase this painting, click here.

Hey, you got the feel of the roads right on. Your mix of color temp's and edges work.

That tunnel effect is very captivating. Would like to see the street view you used. :-)
