After Aeris doing some research about Edmonton heritage history, she learned YEG old houses were built with various architecture styles, i.e. Classical Revival, Tudor Revival, Georgian/Jacobethan Revival, French Provincial Revival, Spanish Colonial,  Arts & Crafts, Victorian Queen Anne.. For the best result, she went to the field to take house photos directly for painting project references. She posted all reference photos on another IG @yegoldhouses. All YEG Old Houses paintings will be representing 11 classical architecture styles found in 7 rich history neighborhoods, Highlands, Glenora, Westmount, Garneau, Strathcona, Alberta Avenue, McCauley.

Exploring

12 +1 YEG Old Houses Acrylic Paintings

Using a bold black line to shape each YEG Old 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 her emotions, personality, and lively style that are developing through the McLuhan House artist studio. In addition, she 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.
