My Feelings About Vincent van Gogh's paintings
I like and dislike the kind of art that Vincent van Gogh did.
The reason I like his kind of art because it stands out even though it is made out of simple colours.
I didn’t like the kind of art that Vincent van Gogh made because he only used simple colours like blue, yellow and etc. He did not use any neon colours like Neon green or Neon yellow or any other colours that did not look simple.
Vincent van Gogh could have done better by using brighter colours in his art.
The Kind of Art Vincent van Gogh Did and Mediums He used
The art that Vincent van Gogh did is painting and drawing.
The mediums that he used are:
Oil paint
Water colour
Paint brushes
The Artistic Category Vincent van Gogh's Artwork Fell Into
Vincent van Gogh painted about realistic things, not abstract things.
The style he used for his paintings is post-impression. Post-impression is when you use simple colours but they are bold.
Quotes by Van Gogh
“If you hear a voice within you say ‘you cannot paint’, then all means paint, and the voice will be silenced”

“The best way to know god is to love many things”

“I dream of painting and then I paint my dream”

“I put my heart and soul into my work, and have lost my mind in the process”

“I often think the night is more alive and richly-coloured than the day”

“I am  still far from being what I want to be, but with God’s help I shall succeed”

“It is not the language of painters but the language of nature which one should listen to, the feeling for the things themselves, for reality is more important than the feeling for pictures”

“I experience a period of frightening clarity in those moments when nature is so beautiful. I am no longer sure of myself, and the paintings appear as in a dream”

“I wish they would only take me as I am”

“As we advance in life it becomes more and more difficult, but in fighting the difficulties the inmost strength of the heart is developed”

“There is nothing more truly artistic than to love people.”

“At present I absolutely want to paint a starry sky. It often seems to me that night is still more richly-coloured than the day; having hues of the most intense violets, blues and greens. If only you pay attention to it you will see that certain stars are lemon-yellow, others pink or a green, blue and forget-me-not brilliance. And without my expatiating on this theme it is obvious that putting little white dots on the blue-black is not enough to paint a starry sky.”
