Thanks, Val.  I think I need to take a break from Vincent for  awhile.  I am getting starry-eyed.

Thanks, TeresaM.  I had always wanted to try to copy great works.  I enjoyed the experience.  Hope Van Gogh did not mind my trying to imitate his style

Mea, Van Gogh on crumpled paper looks great! It looks even better than the acrylic I feel.
Your “van goghy”  Hawaiian composition with pen and ink is a great idea!  :clap: :clap:

your versions of van Gogh are great Mea :yippee: :yippee: :yippee:
Your own one however doesn't have the impressionist effect of individual dabs of paint. Somehow it seems more blended than the previous. Are you not maybe trying to add to much detail into the scene?
