Geoguessr I by Mr--Jack Geoguessr I by Mr--Jack
I've been playing this a lot lately, and always think that I need to work from ref a bit more, so after I saw Peter Boehme's lovely google street view studies I figured I'd combine the two!
Forcing myself to paint each place I get dropped in, whether it's exciting or not, though there a couple of places from other rounds that I might re-visit that looked quite nice as well.

Hopefully I'll do more of this!
About half an hour or so for each image.

also the locations are -
Montana
Nevada
Canada (near the Alaskan border)
country Victoria
Botswana

Enjoy!

What's the highest score you've got? ^^ I'm at 11k now haha, I get most everything in Europe right but whenever something's in the USA I just take a wild guess and am easily hundreds of miles off, heh.

These are lovely and a great exercise I bet! Should try this some time.

I like this series of work. A patchwork of shapes and smears but all of it distinct and easily recognisable.
