Our August Paintout is
Prince Edward Island, Canada.

Open for participation from
August 1st till August 31st.

View Larger Map

You'll find an interactive map of Prince Edward Island 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.

What a beautiful place Prince Edward Island in Canada seems to be! Lots of scenery to choose from. I think we'll enjoy this trip!


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 now 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 right of the screen, you will see two options that open for you, CHOOSE THE TOP ONE, "Paste link in email or IM". 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 right of the map, in the light blue bar.

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.

Wonderful painting, Bill.

I love your clever challenge and seeing what people have created.

Billy Guffey said...

Thanks Liz.

Hi Marian. Thanks. I also like seeing what others choose and their methods of transforming that scene into art.

Prince Edward is one of the most beautiful places on the planet. I look forward to meeting the challenge

Karen said...

I'm enjoying seeing these paintings and drawings of PEI. It isn't somewhere I've been, bit I would love to; my favourite books as a child were set there.
