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?!
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.
