Edward Hopper

    For this project I painted a scene in the style Edward hopper would have. Hopper is known for his vibrant colors, use of architecture and geometric shapes, and the loneliness of his paintings. Because of this i painted a room that was completely empty except for one lamp in the corner. I also painted windows, another common hopper feature, looking out at buildings. Even though I was painting something to look like someone else's work, I still used my own references to create an original peice.
   Through this project I was able to learn new techniques and gain skill with acrylic paint. I learned how to evenly apply paint to the canvas and how to blend colors, to make the painting look smoother. If I could change anything I would have started with a wash, instead of a bare canvas.
