Question for the artist?

Artist's description:

This is precisely the same scene that Vincent van Gogh painted in 'Starry Night over the Rhone' in 1888. I sat and sketched the scene just off Place Lamartine one evening in Arles in September 2008 and it is largely unchanged. It was magical and truly fascinating to have a crack at a scene which Vincent would have instantly recognised.

This painting is made using the drypoint method, an intaglio printmaking technique a bit like etching. I incise an image by hand into a polypropylene sheet and from this I make a print using vegetable based inks and an old fashioned etching press. I then tint the painting by hand with watercolour.

Materials used:

Drypoint and watercolour on 300 gsm heavy duty fine art paper
