I’ll never forget the first time I saw a real Van Gogh painting in person. I was in awe. When I saw Van Gogh it was as if all the other people in the museum and the museum itself melted away and I was alone in the universe with it. I swear I heard whispering in my ear.
I didn’t realize how much it had affected me at first. I had been painting washy, pastel-colored watercolors. After that trip to the Chicago art museum I was painting bold, rich colors, practically using them right out of the tube. I switched back to painting in oils so I could build up the paint more.
Now, whenever I find myself getting too tight with my technique I visit Van Gogh.
