I have retroactively decided that January is Edward Hopper month here at Monday Morning Art. All month long I’m going to post my works that are inspired by the man who gave us “Nighthawks.” Today we have a Hopperesque painting of Lee Street, inspired a series of photos I took fifteen years ago. As with all of the paintings I’ve been posting here for the last year or so, this is not a finished product, but rather a small-scale study, that I fully intended to blow up and render on canvas more fully at a larger size at some point in the future when they’ve added an extra twelve hours to the day.
While I like the composition, I’m not at all happy with the sky on this one. It’s little to Van-Gooery for my tastes. I’m going to have to work on that. This is acrylics on thick board, cropped digitally after scanning.
If you want to see this painting larger, just click on it.
