Van Gogh has always been one of my favorite artists. I love that he created his own style and didn't conform to what everyone else was doing. Notice the stars in these few pictures, so beautiful and amazing! He placed complementary colors next to each other to make them really stand out.

|The Starry Night|
He used very thick layers of paint and vigorous brushstrokes to form intense patterns and shadows.

|Road with the Cypresses|
Van Gogh loved how nature combined the blue of the sky with the yellow of the fields. He described it as "a symphony in blue and yellow."
|Vincent Willem van Gogh|
Vincent's father and grandfather were both ministers and he too became a minister. He worked in a very poor mining district, where he too, was very poor. He drew pictures of the miners and found solace in that. After two years, he felt he was meant to serve humanity through art. From then on, he never stopped drawing and painting.
Hope your day is visually stimulating!
