A coastal view from Azores, Portugal. I've never been to Portugal, but that is one country on my list to see.
There is a cool blog for artist to paint a scene from anywhere in the world via Virtual Paint. Each month Virtual Paint picks a country where you must use a view found through Google Street View as a reference for a drawing or painting. Then you can post to the blog with others to see their take on that country.
I'm more interested in exploring different countries and hopefully I find something that peeks my interest. I'm hoping that by using this idea, that it will get me ready for my visit to Paris in September. Plein air painting is something I would like to master.
