Vincent


This is for the Monthly Sketch Project. I hope you find it mooving. The reference photo was taken by Chrissy, thanks for the inspiration. I had been reading The Yellow House by Martin Gayford, a biography of Vincent Van Gogh (an excellent book) and the reference photo reminded me of him for some odd reason. So I attempted to paint it like his portraits. I'm not sure if I am finished with it yet. But it was fun, maybe a bit too cartoonish though.

Well, of course I have to ask...why the name Vincent? Has to be a great story there...
Love the artwork!
