Van Gogh Sunflowers

Astounded by his work,Vincent Van Gogh created a beautiful piece of art named ‘Sunflowers’ in 1888. The painting of flowers are made by oil paints. These are the sizes of his pictures ( Because he made four) The first one was 73.5x60, the second one was 98x69, the third was 91x72 and the last one was 92.1x73. This is only one of a few of his bright pictures. It broke the record of the selling of 4,000,000.

Happy! I know that he was happy because he was actually going to have someone to live with.Usually he paints the main picture on the side of the canvas. But in this picture he put used the whole page and put the main subject in the middle of the page.

The texture was so thick if you slid your finger down the painting, it would scrape your finger! Sometimes he would buy so much paint that he went craving for food. The very bright colors he used for one of them was light yellow, brown, dark yellow , only a little bit of black and light green.

What I think about the flowers is that It is a picture of young people, adults and pensioner, because some of them they are new flowers, but some are look like they’ve lived long enough and some just look like there going to die or they are dead. If you look closely at the old flowers you can actually see the big blobs on the old big flower.

I think that he was happy when he painted the painting of the sunflowers because he was going to have another friend and a painter to live with him. One thing that is magnificent is that he painted four pictures in four days ( and everybody screams at us when where painting “ART TAKES TIME”!) and all of them are so awesome.

Well I think it’s real sad that only after he died everybody loved his work.and we never got to see some of his work, because it got burnt or ripped in either world war 1 & world war 2.Did you know that he shot himself when he was 37?
