Gheluvelt Park, Van Gogh style painting
Acrylic on canvas, 18x14"
I started this painting outside. The weather was very hot and the light was bright, making the colours and contrasts intense. When I came to finish the painting at home I just didn't feel the same excitement about it that I felt outside. I changed the style of it to look more like a Van Gogh painting because I love that style and it gave me more enthusiasm. I found that this style did express more of how I felt when I was actually there than if I had just painted it 'straight'.
