Toronto Facade

6x6 oil on gessoboard
In downtown Toronto, there is a great mix of old and new. This block of lovely buildings has been beautifully restored. I think it is on Wellington Street near Yonge.

Beautifully designed, Catherine and not overpainted. Like the light in the windows.

I really really like this one! Did you start with a black ground? The colors just pop so nicely.

Thanks for all of your comments!
Shelby, I started with a ground of transparent earth brown (I often do that). After I did most of the painting, I outlined certain areas with a black mix of diox violet and ivory black.
