Queen Street Shoppers, February

6x6 Oil on board
Queen Street in Toronto is an eclectic mix of boutiques, galleries, bars, cafes, and restaurants, usually in the original architecture. When the sun came out after our recent snow storm, I grabbed my camera and went in to get some photos. I liked the way the sun peaked around this corner building, highlighting these young ladies as they shopped on Queen Street. The light posts are always covered in signs, adding some color and interest.

I really like the feeling in this painting. The light, the handling of the brushwork, and the color all make this a really nice piece. I like the colorful bands of flyers on the post, also!!podget

Catherine, just love how you got the glow in the tops of the girls head...and how you managed to put warmth in the snow....yet still casting a feeling of cold day.

Catherine, I commented on this work on Fb, but I want to add that you achieve such body language with such economy of brushwork!It feels as if we know those girls!
