View Larger Map

You'll find an interactive map of London, England above, though you can't access the little yellow man from that map. Use the link below it "View Larger Map", and the map will appear on your monitor; drag the little Yellow Man onto the map, step into London, and start exploring. Find an interesting subject/area. Change it all you want. Or paint it straight up as you see it. Instructions are in the sidebar to the right. Any questions, ask 'em in the comments or email me directly.

Again, we are happy to mention that Google has given their okay for artists to use Street View as a reference for paintings that can then be sold without fear of copyright infringement.

Thank you to the Google Maps Team, the Google Street View Team, and all those involved. And thank you, artists, for participating.

NOW LET'S HAVE SOME FUN!

Awesome Bill! Congrats on the coverage for your virtual paintouts. This is like getting a free plane ticket! I went to school in London and can't wait to visit King's Road and do some painting.
