It’s been a month and a half since our trip to Amsterdam. The driving force behind this trip to The Netherlands, was to see The van Gogh Museum. I was NOT disappointed.
“Vincent” is an original acrylic painting on 9 x 12 inch heavyweight Mixed Media paper.
This is the first painting I started after my trip to the beautiful city of Amsterdam…and two visits to the van Gogh museum. I have been smitten with the art of Vincent van Gogh for a while now, but to see his art in person, made a huge impression on me…especially his self portraits. I came home with those images in my head, and a real need to get some bold and colorful brush strokes down on paper. I used no photo reference for this painting, I just wanted the images in my head, to form the basis for this painting of Vincent. There was just something about seeing that piercing stare…
This painting is now available in my online art shop, ArtcyLucy on Etsy.
