A week ago was Art in the Street in Guelph and since I wasn't participating as a vendor this year, I set up instead with my easel and paints and painted a small piece on location, which after a long hiatus of work outdoors, felt like the Tin Man getting a squirt of oil.
Here I am, looking down Quebec Street to the crowded fair.
And here people gather. A good crowd of tai chi-ers showed up to do their thing.
Strategies I used: way less people than the original, a narrower street and a tilt to it to give it more interest, exaggeration of colours to get away from all the greys in the original and to convey a sense of summer warmth.
