Painting No. 46- Pennsylvania Coal Town Study I



6" x 6" - Oil on Canvas Board
NFS

This is the first of two little studies of the painting Pennsylvania Coal Town by Edward Hopper. The little paintings this year have been great but I was jonesing for a really big one and decided to but a 40" x 30" big boy and do a copy of that painting.

This particular painting is a life-sized sample of the top left corner of the Hopper. It's almost abstract when you take it out of context but I was trying to get a feel for the size and feel the real one would have.

Here is a shot of the large canvas with a really rough underpainting blocked out. It's pretty mammoth compared to the other 6" x 6" on the easel. That's a sneak preview of No. 50.


So, a little different for this post but I wanted to mix it up a little bit before moving onto normal subjects.
