Sailing Vessel, Sea Cloud in the harbour of Las Palmas in the Canary Islands

I painted this oil painting for "The Virtual Paintout" put on by Bill Guffey, he features monthly challenges from locations around the globe, this month he chose the Canary Islands, in the Atlantic Ocean. We use Google street view to find a subject.


  1. Love this painting of yours Horst. While looking at the Virtual Paintout paintings, I was struck by how wonderful yours is! Isn't this a fun painting idea that Bill Guffey is running. Keep up the gorgeous work!

  2. Just discovered Virtual Paintout, and I loved seeing your painting of Sea Cloud! I sketched what I think was the SAME BOAT when I was in Playa del Carmen last year! I'm not certain, but it was called Sea Cloud, and it looked like this:
    Same same?
    You did a lovely job of it. I'm glad I found your blog.
