Van Gogh

Thursday, June 09, 2005 | 0 Comments

This is a project that I did for a design class. The assignment was to make a self portrait in VanGogh's style as a postage stamp. I need a little more work on my VanGogh style, but I liked the result anyway.
I really like the Impressionistic style, but Van Gogh did far more with it than others had. There is a lot of emotion and energy in his work and not just technique. There is just something about crazy people I guess.

Sylvana, that is so unbelievable! You are really friggin' great at painting. I think you should put that in your picture section instead of the south park character. Seriously!

It's funny, I'm planning on getting some paints and some canvas and an easel for my porch.

Maybe I can ask you what I should get because I would love to try to do VanGogh like you do VanGogh.

I love the color defintion on the sides of the face and the neck. I really mean it. Do you do art often?

I have been creating art since I was very little. My forte is drawing. I only started painting a few years ago. Although I do paint with both acrylics and oils, this particular piece is actually a digital painting. I will be posting more of my art later.

I'm impressed. And madly jealous. I can't draw a straight line. You are so talented at so many different things.

Wow! What beautiful work! You are very talented indeed.
I can barely draw a stick figure.
