Toronto Skyline

9"X6" Watercolour on paper

This is a really old one. I was living in Toronto and had just taken a watercolour course at Three Schools (that dates me right there). I was trying to break away from the very precise pen and ink work I had been doing.

We had a flat roof, accessible from the third floor window. We used it as a sort of balcony and had tubs of plants out there. I enjoyed drawing and painting from up there too. This was Concord Avenue I think, just south of Bloor West and not far from Ossington. I am not sure where exactly the church is, maybe on Ossington as this is looking north-east.
