This past Friday Zoe and I went to a wonderful art exhibit called "About Van Gogh" at the Palos Verdes Art Center in Rancho Palos Verdes. A small venue that made it perfect for a budding art student. Out of the norm, this show is a collection of oil paintings done by unknown artists after famous Van Gogh paintings such as 'The Starry Night'. and a few Van Gogh self portraits, along with some other pieces I have long forgotten.
You can really appreciate Van Gogh's brush work and his use of lines, dots and swirls. They also had a demo on how he did his 'Sunflower' pieces.
Inspired. Zoe has now started her own version of 'Starry Night' in oil on canvas.
