Our October paintout is
Belfast, Northern Ireland.
View Larger Map
You'll find an interactive map of Belfast, Northern Ireland 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 Belfast and the adjacent area in Northern Ireland, 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.
This month we are including the rural areas north of Belfast into the project. Not just the city itself. This area is currently the only part of Ireland available through Google Street View, so we thought we'd include the whole thing for a variety of urban and rural references.
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.
Remember, participation is open to all levels of artistic ability.
NOW LET'S HAVE SOME FUN!
