Vincent Van Gogh

Van Gogh, one of the most terrific painters we know .He suffered through sanity and pain though his life was full with depression.It’s so sad that he died before anyone under stood how great his paintings were.He had little money to buy food so he nibbled on paint chps.He got lead poisoned for that to.

Once he was full of anger he didn’t think straight and cut off part of his ear and sent it to his girlfriend.She disliked that.how sore it must of been.

Here are my three of my favourite paintings from Vincent Van Gogh.

Van Gogh Paragraph check

All of these wonderful paintings and one of them is my best. Sun flowers is one of the most famous paintings by Vincent Van Gogh. In fact it is so famous it has a record of fourty million dollars for this painting. It was 92cm long and 73 cm wide, which is pretty big. It was an oil painting to hang in his flat mate’s room Paul Gauguin. It was painted in 1888.....4

The colours in this painting are yellow, red, orange, brown and green. I think those colours were meant to show that he was happy. This painting has texture that is clumpy and bumpy and really thick.....4

One thing I like about the picture is how he shows life in the lines. It kind of shows us that being a sunflower is like life,  some sunflowers are young and beautiful and some are old and ugly.  All the movement in the lines make it look alive.4/4

I like how he describes his feeling in his paintings. It shows that he’s happy. If I was to show I was happy I would never think of painting, One smart fellow he was.....4

It will be a real great experience to see this painting for real life. Ithink it is a real great painting. It is so sad Vincent died before any one apreciated his work......3

If you add up my markings I got 19 out of 20
