Painting Van Gogh Sunflowers. Special Offer.

Click image to enlarge

After demonstrating how to paint sunflowers with acrylics in a style similar to Van Gogh, I brought the demo painting home and added some opaque oil paint to the sunflowers and vase. You will notice that my version of "Twelve Sunflowers" was inspired by Van Gogh's painting but did not duplicate exactly. My personality always creeps into each painting I do, and so will yours. This is as it should be because as an artist, we each want to develop a personal style. If you are being true to yourself, your style will always show a bit of your personality in each painting you do.
