Virtual Paintout - Greenland III - March 2015

"Ice Float"
Oil pastel on 6x9 inch panel

Virtual Paintout - Greenland II - March 2015

There are practically no roads connecting villages in Greenland, so the Google team often resorts to travelling by boat. I thought I might try painting an iceberg for my second submission this month but in the end I think I prefer moving water. Here is the reference photo I found in "Street View" LINK

"Waterfall in Greenland"
5x7 inch oil on canvas

Virtual Paintout - Greenland - March 2015

Greenland looks quite barren and icy in Google Street View but I found some nice colors in the images dating from September 2014 near Nuuk. 

After painting all afternoon, I thought I'd exaggerated the reds but then googled "Images for Greenland in autumn" and was surprised to find similar reds in the photographs. The area is known for the strong colors of its autumn landscapes, which contrast so well with the backdrops of snow and ice.

Virtual Paintout - Philadelphia II - January 2015

Difficult to miss the "Swann Memorial Fountain" when you visit Philadelphia given its central location near so many of the city's highlights like the Barnes Foundation, the Rodin Museum, Moore College of Art, the Franklin Institute, the Philadelphia Free Public Library. I have taken several photographs here over the years, usually of the turtle and frog sculptures near the outside rim. However, I am only now learning that the three figures in the middle depict Native Americans and each represents a local waterway (the Delaware, the Schuylkill and the Wissahickon). A real tribute to water since Dr Swann himself was head of the Philadelphia Fountain Society, a company which helped provide drinking water to the city.

"Logan Square"
oil on 18x24 cm canvas

Virtual Paintout - Philadelphia - January 2015

No building in Philadelphia could be built taller than the hat of the William Penn statue on top of City Hall. The rule was finally broken in the late 80s but the story of the hat has always fascinated me so when it came to naming my painting, it dawned on me that I had just painted:
