    The mysterious black on the men’s suits and in the shadows gives defintion to Hopper’s nighthawks. The questions placed in the shadowed corners give an erry vibe to the scene.
    In contrast, the scarlet on the woman’s dress and the awnings plays with the dark colors to represent an evil scandal.
    I want to look away from this painting because I feel as if I might witness a crime scene, but for that reason I can not turn my eyes away from the diner.
