Our November Paint Out is
Tijuana
Open for participation from November 1 thru November 30




You'll find an interactive map of Tijuana, Mexico above, though you can't access the little yellow pegman from that map. Use the link on the upper left of, or below, the map, "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 Tijuana, Mexico. I've included an area to the south of Tijuana as well, with the boundaries as follows; the US border to the north, the coast to the west, the 201 to the east and south.

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! Google has 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.)

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 submissionUsing the new Google Map to get a short link to your location in Street View, you need to do the following...

While in Street View, click on the three dots in the box that shows the location name. In the pop out box then click "Share or Embed Image". Click on that and in the box that pops up, make sure the "Share Link" tab is active, then simply check the box for "Short URL". Copy that link and paste it in the body of your email submission (and send to yourself so you don't lose your location.)



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!
