This is my oil painting on board 12X9 inches for this month's Virtual Paintout challenge for San Francisco, using Google Street View.

I drop the little yellow pegman at random, He took me in washington street / mason str crossroad , I turned around and the chinese center caught me ;)))

february Challenge

From the Monthly painting challenge
You can view paintings from other artist through the comments

I let some artistic license in ;) - I kept the cool blue and the cool white in and warmed a little the bushes. I increased the readability of the forms in the middle ground and make some buidings.

byannick  Oil on paper 14x16

After Robert Henri
Oil on paper 14x16" Chinese Chico

No likeness, but painted without looking more than 5 times at the reference... So perhaps... I can say I am improving ;)

I discovered the Challenge Blog " Following the masters" and it is the TENth Challenge.

If you are an artist you can join in!
