Royal Alexandra Theatre, King Street

8x10 oil on board
People often ask me to do streetcar scenes, so I often include them in paintings. Although I do point out that it is almost impossible to take pictures on some Toronto streets without finding a Streetcar or Beck Taxi lurking somewhere in the photograph. I do enjoy the colours, the bright reds adding a nice touch to a grey day or night scene.
 This scene features the Royal Alexandra Theatre on King Street West.
Thanks to Ben Roffelsen for the photo reference.
