Virtual Paintout still in Sri Lanka

Here is another VirtualPaintout Streetview painting of Sri Lanka, this time near Kandy, in the picturesque mountain area in the centre of the country. Here is the link to it.

I was thinking of naming the painting ‘Looking for a hotel along the Bodhiraja Mawatha’ as many of the dozens of signs along this stretch advertise hotels (the Hill’s Edge Hotel is my favourite). Then I realized the day is long gone when I would arrive in a place this full of fantastic things to see and paint without knowing exactly where I was going… or, better yet, being driven in a nice air-conditioned bus by someone who knew exactly where I was going.
