20x16 oil on canvas
I have been reading a book on Van Gogh which has excerpts of Vincent's letters to his brother Theo, telling him about his adventures/thoughts on changing the color of some of the elements in his paintings. I was inspired to try something different in the background in this painting of a stargazer lily, and chose golden yellow, after having a look at Vincent's painting called 'Street in Saintes-Marie-de-la-Mer.' The effect with this lily reminds me of gold leaf... the energy of the brush work makes me smile.
I had fun painting this one, can you tell?
