Night Shadows by Edward Hopper

etching / 1921

The VMFA has a show of etchings that are nocturnes. This is my favorite for the spooky look.

I heard nocturnes are difficult to do and I like them so I always wanted to try. I picture so many tints of black and gray, making a very dark drawing, but this etching has large areas of white. And you can tell it’s night.
