I actually painted this watercolor of Vincent Van Gough more than a year ago, well before I started this blog. But then last week I did a sketch of Vincent and decided to put them together in this post.
Van Gough is my favorite for many reasons. We know he was a tortured soul. It is touching to realize how talented he was at the same time. The fact that he died not knowing how popular he would become adds an extra bit of pathos to his story. But his painting really speak for themsleves. He had a unique vision, expertly executed in his work that will be around as long as we remain.
