February 8 - Danforth project

Here's a quick sketch of one of the pieces I'm working on for the Danforth Art Walk in April in Toronto. I'm basing my watercolours on archival photos of the area of the Danforth between Greenwood and Woodbine. This was Danforth Radio. Of course most, if not all, of the photos that I'm digging up are black and white so I'm having to use artistic license with the colours. I also have to work bigger than I normally do to do a better job of the text (so you can identify the place). I'm going to the actual archives tomorrow to get more images.

Wish me luck.
