You'll find an interactive map of Lisbon, Portugal above, though you can't access the little yellow pegman 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 Lisbon, 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 always 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.
A BIG welcome to all the new followers of this blog! Remember, participation is open to all levels of artistic ability.
NOW LET'S HAVE SOME FUN!
