Our June 2014 Paint Out is

Vladivostok and the

Primorsky Kray Region

Open for participation from June 1st thru June 30th




View Larger Map

You'll find an interactive map of Vladivostok and the Primorsky Kray region above, though you can't access the little yellow pegman from that map. Use the link on the upper right of the map, "View on Google Maps", 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 the Primorsky Kray region of eastern Russia, which includes the city of Vladivostok. This area coverage stops at the northern city of Luchegorsk, so anything south of that is okay to travel in, just stay inside the Russian border.

  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 please make sure you include the SHORT URL for the reference with your submission. The image below is using the OLD MAP. You can still get to the old map by clicking on the small gear icon at the bottom right of the NEW MAP. If the SHORT URL isn't used the Location Link will not be included. Thanks!


Below is another option for getting a short URL. If you use Google Chrome browser, install the short URL app. Makes it really easy to grab a short URL from any page you are on.



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!
