Van Gogh!

Recently, in my "Inspired by the Masters" workshop, we studied the life and style of Vincent Van Gogh. Inspired by the painting above, we looked at our own vase of sunflowers and created large-scale paintings using bright colors and distinct brush-strokes. We also used the technique of "impasto" by thickening our paint with a little bit of flour. Beautiful.
