January is still Edward Hopper homage month here at PopCult, and today we have a study (acrylic on board) of a scene from a trip to Chicago a couple or three years ago. I altered the composition a bit from my photo reference to be a bit more Hopperesque, and I think I’m getting closer to understanding his interplay between shadow and light.

When I blow this up on a real canvas, I’ll probably rearrange and remove some of the vehicles.

If you want to see this one a bit bigger, just click on it.

Meanwhile, Monday at 2 PM on The AIR, we attempt to warm your frozen cockles with a new episode of  Psychedelic Shack, followed at 3 PM by a new edition of Herman Linte’s weekly showcase of the Progressive Rock of the past half-century, Prognosis.  You can listen to The AIR at the website, or on the embedded radio player at the top of the right-hand column of this blog.

Nigel Pye dipped into his archives for another primo stash of amazing psychedelic rock, expanding your minds as he always does.

Check out the playlist for all the trippy music man…
