Van Gogh

I was looking through some of Van Gogh’s work online, however unlike a lot of artists work that i look at, it wasn’t the usual ‘are-we-done-yet’ marathon. Van Gogh seems to discover new colours, especially with his paintings of the night. Being unable to see clearly at night, he just paints what he see’s, pitting his colours against one another. He exaggerated these colours with thick daubs of paint, bringing out the backgrounds and giving each in of canvas its own sense of life. His paintings provide a tenderness, urgency and brilliance to the audience.
