Starry Starry Night

Starry Starry Night the painting is by the famous artist Vincent Van Gogh. He painted this painting in  June 1889 in France. Vincent Van Gogh was an impressionist painter.

The Colours in Starry Starry Night are used all over the the sky. There is a peaceful village that has dark colours and just a little bit of yellow for the lights. The main colour is blue because it is used all over the sky.

The Foreground in Starry Starry Night is not as good as the background because it doesn’t have as much bright colours. The background has a lot of bright colours that bring the light to the picture. All the stars and the moon have a very light yellow just like the sun.

If you look closely at the painting you will see very small details. The details are big bold brush strokes. Vincent Van Gogh painted it with very thick paint and brush strokes.

The year after he painted Starry Starry Night Vincent Van Gogh shot himself and had to go hospital. Unfortunately the doctors couldn’t save him. So in 1890 Vincent Van Gogh died.
