another virtual paintout scene: prague

(8x10)
This month's Virtual Paintout location is the Czech Republic. Of all the places I've virtually visited for VP, I found the street scenes of Prague the most appealing to date.
I actually have several scenes I'd like to paint, but I've been too busy engaging in not-unproductive diversionary tactics: painting the art room, clearing out the closet and sorting through papers, paints and palettes; choosing colors to fill two new palettes ... (next project: sand and varnish the art room floor).
If it weren't for trying to avoid doing other even-less-appealing things, I'd never get anything done!

I love the soft colors. You are good with perspective too. Not an easy thing. The virtual paintout sounds fun.

Love this picture. So evocative, what with the bend in the street. And you put in the figures so effortlessly. Seems like a hot press paper?

As to the procrastination technique . . . well, I'll put off commenting for now.

Hi Laura,

My son Sam visited Prague with his
high school band and loved it.
I love this painting. Just perfect.
According to Sam it's worth a reality visit too.

Take care,

Barbara
