Need some inspiration for your summer art and travels? Or are you having a
"staycation" this year? I found a couple of interesting sites to rev you up:

http://virtualpaintout.blogspot.com/ This one is a network of artists who
virtually visit predetermined cities all over the world each month and paint
or draw from city views that appear on Google's Street View. They then post
their work on the blog. Interestingly, Google has given its okay for the
artists to use screen shots of the views and sell their work if Google is
credited in the labels or descriptions.

http://www.urbansketchers.com/ Another network of artists who sketch their
surroundings either in their hometowns or on their travels.

Quito is almost overwhelming with wonderful sketching opportunities. My
terrace overlooks the city below and on clear mornings I can see three
volcanoes.
