Virtual Paintout - Greenland II - March 2015


There are practically no roads connecting villages in Greenland, so the Google team often resorts to travelling by boat. I thought I might try painting an iceberg for my second submission this month but in the end I think I prefer moving water. Here is the reference photo I found in "Street View" LINK

Virtual Paintout - Greenland - March 2015


Greenland looks quite barren and icy in Google Street View but I found some nice colors in the images dating from September 2014 near Nuuk. 


I thought I'd exaggerated the reds but then googled "Images for Greenland in autumn" and was surprised to find similar reds in the photographs. The area is known for the strong colors of its autumn landscapes, which contrast so well with the backdrops of snow and ice.
