My favorite artist

Vincent Van Gogh

Ok, I need to take a break from all the craftiness.  I miss fine art.  I've been working on photographing my artwork this summer and I came across some Van Gogh studies I did a few years ago when I was student teaching.  Van Gogh is definitely my favorite artist.  His paintings have so much feeling and movement.  They are captivating.

 Study in tempera paint- who would have thought you could get a Van Gogh effect with tempera paint?!

Van Gogh Irises Study

Studies in oil pastels



And a study of my favorite Van Gogh painting "Irises".  I did this with acrylic paints on a canvas board.  This was really fun to do.  I have to try a Van Gogh study in oils someday.
