A diary of artwork in progress en plein air and in studio.
At home with Van Gogh
The Orange House
At a local art group recently, I attended a lecture by Anthony Slinn, about Vincent van Gogh, which made quite an impression. It was particularly interesting because Prof. Slinn has carefully researched, and physically visited locations of many of Vincents paintings. From assessing the viewpoints, he discovered how Vincent re-imagined and manipulated the landscape to express his feelings. Though key features are recognizable in the paintings, when compared with the locations today, it can be seen how Vincents mind and eye re-interpreted them in his unique manner.
