Old Streets Grown Anew

Watercolour, and pen on watercolour paper.

This is just a litte piece that I worked on yesterday.

I was sitting home alone, so I decided to scour Google for old pictures of Edmonton, Alberta. And so…

I found this photo on Vintage-Edmonton.com. It is of Jasper Avenue.

The reason I chose this photo, is because Jasper Avenue is so close to where I live. My Boyfriend didn’t recognize where  the photo was taken, but for me as an Edmontonian, the scene was very familier.

I am also guessing that this photo was taken in the 1950s. I was looking for something from the 20s, but this works all the same.

About the actual art. 

I chose to only depict a portion of the photo. It might well have been out of laziness. But, now I am debating drawing the rest of the photo; creating a diptych or a triptych.
