A Starry Christmasrtremblay62
“A Starry Christmas” allowed me to try something new by experimenting with the “Thick Paint” feature of Painter 2018. I was able to make a close study of van Gogh’s brush strokes by placing a copy of “The Starry Night” on a separate layer to refer to as I painted my composition on the “Thick Paint” layer. I created my own brush variants in an attempt to emulate the brush stokes of the master painter. I also began reading Vincent’s biography and correspondence to his brother Theo.
I am not sure van Gogh would be appreciative of my efforts but it was sure a learning experience for me.
