A new small landscape!   Its been awhile since I've done a landscape - so it was fun to go back to this subject matter.  This was part of an online project called Virtual Paintout.   There is a monthly challenge given.  Using Google Maps, street view - artists are invited somewhere new around the world to view the area and find an area to paint.   This painting comes from the Isle of Jersey which is in the English Channel.  See the link below for the exact site from which I painted virtually.  Its along the eastern shore of the island.  Its a fun idea - and something that would have been impossible just a few years ago!  Thanks to the street view from Google we can go places that probably would never happen otherwise!

Nice shady lane. I like what you did with the street view.

I love this scene. To me it seems more like a full moon evening scene, rather than a daylight scene...but it's charming either way.

Thank you so much for your comments! The whole thing was fun to do: a virtual exploration of a new place, a new little painting, and finding a new buyer on the west coast!
I kinda want to go to Jersey now, and see if I can find this spot! :)
