This month is our 5th Anniversary!

I started this project in February 2009, 
which has now seen over 4,100 submissions 
from hundreds of artists over a 61 month period.

Thanks for the participation!



Our February 2014 Paintout is

Washington, D.C.

Open for participation from February 1st thru February 28th



View Larger Map



You'll find an interactive map of Washington, DC 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, let go while he's over a blue area, 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 travel to Washington, DC!  The one rule of boundaries you need to pay attention to this month is to stay inside the Beltway, Interstate 495, that surrounds Washington. It's about 20 miles across and 15 miles from north to south. One might think at first glance that this location is only urban, but don't jump so quickly to that conclusion. There are lots of green space and water interests also. Not to mention all the landmarks and parks. 

 IMPORTANT! PLEASE READ THE FOLLOWING...

It is necessary to stress the importance of a couple of rules. One is the image size issue. It states in the rules in the right sidebar on this blog that the image has to be at a resolution of 72 and no larger than 1000 pixels on the widest side. Submissions not following the rules will not be posted. 

IGNORE THE BLUE DOTS! It appears that Google has now added every user submitted photograph to the maps in the form of blue dots. Make sure your reference comes from the actual Street View application and not a photograph. Thanks. 

Also, each artist must include the URL of the location that the artwork is based upon. To find the URL is easy. In the maps mode, while looking at your scene you have chosen, click the "LINK" button at the top LEFT of the screen, check the "Short URL" button. With that link highlighted simply copy it and paste into your email with your submission. (How do you not lose your location? Click "SEND" with your view up and email it to yourself.) Remember, these buttons are found at the top left of the map.

Also, I've started including Location Links to each artwork posted. If you want a link to your reference included with your information pleasemake sure you include the SHORT URL for the reference with your submission. If the SHORT URL isn't used the Location Link will not be included. Thanks! 




So there you go. Should be extremely easy. If your submission doesn't show up on the blog, please check the list near the top in the sidebar entitled, "Don't see your submission? This could be the reason..." Thanks.  

Thanks again to Google, as they have given their permission for artists to use Street View as a reference for paintings that can then be sold without fear of copyright infringement.

And thank you, artists, for participating.

Remember, participation is open to all levels of artistic ability.

NOW LET'S HAVE SOME FUN!
