Virtual Paintout in the Czech Republic

I took a little break from Panama cruise paintings to do this entry for the Virtual Paintout while they’re still at their May location, the Czech Republic. Like many of the others painting Google Streetviews this month, I’ve discovered some of the most paintable locations are accessible only to pedestrians – and the Google car-mounted cameras have had to be maneuvered in some pretty imaginative ways. This view of the Mansion Tower in Czesky Krumlov, for example, was obtained from what looks like a picnic area in the middle of the stream!
