Toronto Back Alleys 2011, Again


Another one in the series of back alley drawings. I think I've posted almost 20 of them on this blog over the years. This one was done a little while ago, and took a bit longer than usual. I actually completed it in 2 sittings, mainly due to the amount of detail. Like the others, it was painted in gouache and ink on board.

Pretty great drawing. Nice capture of lighting and detail. I really like the quiet mood I get from these. It is like those calm moments between all the human craziness.

Thanks, everyone. I enjoy painting these - it's almost a meditative thing for me.

Joanna: I'll make a print of it to sell at shows, but I'm unsure if I'll have it available for purchase online.
