Virtual Paintout in a different light

Last month I did a second painting of Lima Peru, of an area that hadn’t been covered by the Google Streetview camera.  Because I was no longer limited by Google Streetview’s understandable lack of night scenes, I was able to select a striking night view of the Lima Cathedral.
I like the idea of painting night scenes, and decided to try re-visiting some of the previous Virtual Paintout locations I have done, and paint them ‘in a different light.’ In the case of Lomnický štit, I didn’t have a night photo available, so I just guessed what light might be available not long after sunset in this northwest-facing scene.
