One of the highschool art projects going on right now is to do a painting of the colourful row houses of downtown St. John's, Newfoundland. I lived there for 2.5 years, and I gotta say, the only place I would ever move away from my home town would be to go back to St. John's. Its just a colourful, artsy, and friendly place to live, and I made some really good friends there whom I miss dearly.
Here is my version of the row houses! I have seen these colourful houses painted in this sorta warped, graphic-like style a lot so I went with it for funsies. I also created the bottom painting a few years ago which I was actually commissioned me to paint it this way. Love it, and love that city!
PS: St. John's is the 13th most colourful city in the world! Some useless knowledge for ya. ;-)
