Retro Ladder Street 復古樓梯街

Retro Ladder Street

Retro Ladder Street
Oil and Acrylic on Canvas

The painting is based on an old photo of Ladder Street.  I really like the clothes that the people were wearing which were either white or black which unified the image so well.  A deliberate blue tone  was added to the painting so as to create a cool jazzy feeling to it.  It's also quite a challenge and a lot of fun to paint so many people in one painting.   While painting each one of them, I was like going back in time, trying to think and feel what each person's life was like.
