MOVEMBER in Toronto

A night scene, based on a mural by the artist Elicser on Dundas West (near Ossington) in Toronto. Saw this one night last summer, walking to my hotel from The Painted Lady.

This painting was quite a challenge, there was a lot of subtle detailed required to capture the look of bricks in the dark.  My paintings are also evolving to use more sprayed paint, which I spritz on by hand with tiny atomizers. This adds an element of chaos- random drips, drops and colours- and, I think, channels the aerosol spirit of a street artist.
