Homage to Hopper

December 2018: My second attempt at this Hopper painting.  I don’t like it very much and I mught have to do it again, the tables are wrong, the back wall in not good.  The light on the left of the window is too light/white; the lettering is scrappy, the dark back wall needs some lighter grey in it and the Homage to Hopneed tobe drawn better.  There need to be more shades of grey

A new lino print in my series of homages to Edward Hopper,  This is the famous Nighthawks, I have a copy of it in our living room in colour, it is my favourite painting and I wanted to spend some time in the painting so I am making a relief print

Edward Hopper Nighthawks: photocopy in grey scale

First and Second printing : very light grey mid grey

Next printing will be darker grey and then a final dark grey almost black for the diner itself.  I like getting into a painting as you learn what the painter saw and did, the shadows don’t match anything in the diner!
