YEG Old Houses

11 Architecture Styles & 7 Mature Neighborhoods

After doing some research about Edmonton heritage history, I learned YEG old houses were built with various architecture styles, i.e. Classical Revival, Tudor Revival, Georgian/Jacobethan Revival, Revival French Provincial, Spanish Colonial,  Arts & Crafts, Victorian.. For the best result, I went to the field to take house photos directly for painting project references. I posted all reference photos on another IG @yegoldhouses. The 12 YEG Old Houses paintings will be representing 10 classical architecture styles found in 7 rich history neighborhoods, Highlands, Glenora, Westmount, Garneau, Alberta Avenue.

About YEG Old Houses

THE “YEG Old Houses” painting project aims to combine Edmonton Art and Heritage, while increasing public awareness, promoting education of the value of Edmonton’s rich residential history. Each painting will be named by the neighborhood name and architecture style, with a short description and house photograph displayed during the exhibition. It will allow the public to connect the painting between community, art, and heritage.

12 +1 YEG Old Houses Acrylic Paintings

Using a bold black line to shape each house’s portrait to highlight their architectural style and characteristics, with vibrant bright color acrylic paints to recreate the existing residential with a new look and color. The bold impressionist style captures the essence of the painting object (old houses) and interpreted by my emotions, personality, and lively style that are developing through the McLuhan House artist studio. In addition, I would transform each of the house portrait front yards to my passionate color to glorify the beauty of summertime since Edmonton has a long cold winter.
