from the VAULT #2
During our family walks through Point Pleasant Park, I would often tell the children stories about our favourite spots in the park: the goblin huts locked up tight at the corner of Cambridge Drive and Cable Road; the Troll Cliffs abandoned by those giants who carved them years ago along what is today Bridle Path; and the quiet and magical Frog Pond that was once a stone quarry.
For my second "Vault" post I dug out images of three watercolours of the park locations mentioned above. I recall wanting to render the scenes in a unconventional or stylized manner. I wanted the images to be playful and imaginative rather than an accurate depiction of each park location as they appeared to the eye. "Can I draw out the story inherent in the scene" was the guiding question as I worked on each piece.
