Virtual Paintout Challenge: Belfast, Northern Ireland



Virtual Paintout challenge sketch: Kiln Rd. Newtownabbey, Northern Ireland. This was a last-minute (10pm) submission as the monthly challenge changes over on the last day of each month...just wanted to get in that VP archive! The actual Google Maps view that acted as the basis for this color sketch is here.

This is the skeleton of another, abandoned Belfast sketch started earlier in the month:

...maybe salvageable with the help of a calmer hand, a keener sense of perspective and relational proportion, and a big eraser.

Hey Rock- your Belfast image is a knockout! I really like your composing on this, rhythmic, curvilinear. Can I look forward to a Nova Scotia painting? Gary.

I saw your VP:NS image today and-as a result-am spurred on by your use of great tonal depth to keep with it. The search has already begun.

I love that Belfast 'skeleton' - doesn't need salvaging imo. Your work is wonderful Rock. Hope to see your Nova Scotia version soon?
