There have been several articles in the mainstream media (Telegraph and Daily Mail to mention a couple) just recently, about American artist Bill Guffey, who paints traditional scenes, but instead of painting from a visit to a landscape, or a photo, he uses the pictures provided by Google Street ViewSee his gallery hereIn another gallery, he’s painted a picture from every state in the US (apart from Hawaii, that apparently doens’t yet have Street View).
