Title: Girl at sewing machine
Year: 1921
Artist: Edward Hopper
Medium: Oil on Canvas
I chose this painting because while strolling through Edward Hopper's paintings on Google images this one caught my eye. Why did it catch my eye you may ask? It did so because it everything seems to be done in some shade of orange, which means that it is monochromatic. I have seen paintings that were monochromatic in the past, however this one did not seem so blunt as being one color as the other ones. It seemed like a natural scene at dawn by a window, however if you look really close it is made out of one color, which I think is a great skill to have.
