Playing Along WIth Lynn and Google Maps

My friend Lynn started this new blog so I wanted to play along. I didn't really read the directions and just picked to of the images to do. The idea is to sketch an area using google maps. I really want to do more watercolor so I decided to just play a little.

The first location is this pic at 1 Litchdon St Barnstable England UK

I am using a very small journal so I captured just part of the house.

This is the second image I did, its at 128 Boutport St Barnstable, England.  I loved the red on this picture.

This was fun.  Then I realized what you are supposed to do is not paint what others posted but to use google maps for the location and then you pick your own location to paint.  It sure helps if you read the directions.

I really don't know how to navigate Google Maps, I was stuck in this one corner and couldn't  look elsewhere.  I thought this building looked fun with all its color.

Once again the small journal made it hard but its just a play exercise so I think I am ok. I have a lot to learn about watercolor but it will be fun learning.
