The Lighthouse at
Two Lights, 1929 by Edward Hopper
I think this painting is beautifully done. This picture is one of three oils and several watercolors that he did of
this site during summer 1929 while in Maine.The colors used are really accurate for a sunny day, and although there is no water present in the picture I can imagine there is water near by. I love the color the artist used in the grass and the way it looks like there is a warm breeze against this building. I also believe the shadowing in this painting is really important because it gives the painting a time of day because of where the sun is at the time. The contrast between the sky and landscape is very dramatic which makes the architect of the building/lighthouse really pop out. The space the artist used is important also because it is a very realist painting and I really like the angel he used to portray this lighthouse.
