#2023 "184 York"

This was the midday session during the third day of the Paint the Town Kingston in association with the International Plein Air Painters World Wide Paint Out. Cheryl and Jan and Debbie were painting in the neighbourhood beside the Park so I joined them. I was finished in the Kingston Marina. I do not often do pure architecture. The stark and natural reality of the raw land catches my eye.

The neighbours in the house to the east came out to see what we were painting. At one time the home had been divided into maybe four or five apartments but now it had been reverted back to perhaps a single family dwelling. 
Every painting is another challenge. I liked the strong lighting on the east side of the home. I was painting the shadowed side of the house but it was rich in dark colours. The title of the painting is the street address of the towering red brick home. This property was just a stones throw from the Kingston Memorial Centre across the park to the north.
The Snow Birds started to fly again and to do their Sunday afternoon performance.
