Heading Home, Front and Blue Jays Way

12 x 12 oil on canvas Sold
This painting is a commission piece and is similar to one I did of Queen Street at Osgoode Hall. In this scene, a young man walks down Front Street past Rabba foods on his way home. The owner of the painting is moving from Toronto to New York City and so I wanted to add a Toronto feel and included the Beck Taxi on the right. I am enjoying the blues that I can make with viridian and ultramarine blue and sometimes a dash of cerulean. As a complement, a mix of alizarin and viridian creates interesting darks.

Hi Catherine,

What a lucky young man. Such a beautiful painting to take along.

And New York is pretty exciting too!
