Our June 2011 Paintout is the
New Zealand

Open for participation from
  June 1st till June 30th.

You'll find an interactive map of New Zealand 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 New Zealand. You can travel to both islands, as long as it's New Zealand you're good to go. Many different types of landscapes to choose from this month. Lots of urban, farms, mountains and beaches. Some of the cameras used to film NZ aren't that great, and don't think they used HD cameras there at all. But that's okay, still lots of beautiful scenery.


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 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.
