I was never a huge fan of Van Gogh, but I’ve always very much appreciated it. Last night while stumbling through Tumblr, I found a post of his self-portraits. I thought I would do my own exploration and try a simplified version. However, my original intent was to have between 5 and 10 paint strokes but very rapidly grew beyond that.
I have never ever attempted a digital painting before last night. It was a lot of fun and I may just do it again sometime.
Since this attempt, my appreciation of Van Gogh’s style and technique has grown. I’m especially fond of his use of colour.
