Going all out on the pointillist style.
Three drawings from source daguerreotypes found on a very cool website called http://www.old-picture.com/.
My whole town in rural, prairie ridden Canada has been completely photographed by Google for their Street View product. Good for a homesick gal like myself who can’t actually bring herself to shell out the cash for a plane ticket home.
This one image is fascinating and to me looks like a Winogrand photo.
Spent some time hiking and enjoying good company in Fort Washington, MD. I also achieved a gash on my leg, which I’m told, should have been stitched, but I held off the doctor visit until it had already started healing. The drawing was done after the fact, from memory, so it lacks the details I like. I think the spot deserves more attention and I hope to be back soon to sit and draw in real time.
Once a fixture of every small town in the Canadian prairie, these classic buildings have been disappearing with the advent of cheap and convenient transportation options. Seeing these buildings reminds me of a place that is now far away in both distance and time.
