Artist's description:

This is the second painting in my self titled series, "The Masters". Since i've only been painting for a year and I'm self taught, I thought this would be a great way to understand the minds of the most influential artists, and what made their art so unique. What I learned about Van Gogh's color theory was so elemental yet pivitol. Colors opposite on the color wheel, like green and red, create striking contrasts when placed next to each other. Vincent discovered that while combining the opposing colors in equal intensities created a lifeless grey, but by combining them in unequal proportions made grey that had a tint of either color which still maintained a wonderful contrast and harmony when placed with either color.

I now understand why his art that some may see as simplistic, carried so much depth and emotion, for using such intense colors is bold and full of life, or sadness.

This piece is my interpretation of what it would have appeared like to see vincent through his window, working on his painting of the Asylum entrance where he admitted himself, which is to the right in the painting.

This painting was completed on 4/22/17, so it needs time to dry and seal. Fortunately we have warm weather here in California, so It could be shipped with a temporary varnish in a few weeks.
