"THE IRIS BED, AFTER VAN GOGH"

8"X8"

#39


I've had a resource photo of this beautiful Van Gogh painting laying around forever and I just knew I had to try to paint it for the 150 Challenge. I think it turned out pretty well. The first thing I realized when I tried to paint my first impression of it is that Van Gogh spent a lot of time painstakingly mixing colors and applying them 'just so', even though it looks like he just haphazardly laid on brushstrokes. A genius.
