Starry Wishes for Vincent by LeeAnneKortus Starry Wishes for Vincent by LeeAnneKortus
This is a gift art work for Jaime, who is my 'adopted' niece :love:
She recently had a beautiful baby boy who is named 'Vincent' after his father. The Starry Night by Van Gogh is one of her favorite paintings and one of mine as well. I thought it was fitting to do an painting for little Vincent that was a tribute to Vincent Van Gogh's most famous painting.
Jaime, I hope you love it! I wish little Vincent all the starry wishes of the sky! :heart:

This was a real stretch of style for me. The whole thing is painted with my Wacom in Photoshop. I have a whole new admiration for Van Gogh's style. I felt challenged and a bit uncomfortable with it at first, but in the end found it quite 'freeing'.

Thank you for looking!! :wave:

***WOOHOO!!! This was voted Picture Of The Week on 23rd Nov, 2009 at Photoshop Creative!!!***

This is stunning.
I applaud your talented use of colours and the style of Vincent Van Gogh, especially in the swirling sky and expanding stars. The village below looks quiet and calm and truely adds something to this picture, as do the twisting branches above the boy and bear's heads. The valley and river going far away from the hill keep my eye, and the colours of blue and green there are perfect. My favourite part, however, is still the astonishing sky and all its powerful emotion it seems you put into it. The only complaint I have is that I can't stare at this forever. :)
What do you think?

Don't know the first thing about art, except that I know what I like, and this I like a lot. And it speaks deeply to my melancholic side, this piece of work with such love and sweetness, to a man with a life and mind like his.

This I think is a great tribute.

Wow, impressive! What a beautiful twist from the original. truly magical! I love the tree and the boy with its bear. The only thing is that I'd put the sky a little darker, but it's awesome as it is.
Side note: In the original, what appears is a tree, right? Just wondering, because it looks like a hauted castle to me.

Hey, thanks very much!
Yes I changed up the composition a bit...in the original the hill overlooks a sleepy little village and there is a bit of trees to the left of the painting, but I wanted mine to differ a bit...the castle was my idea, not supposed to look haunted tho ;-) Since, the painting was done for a child's room.
Thank you very much, again, for all the kind words! :heart:

BEAUTIFUL. I think you managed to imitate van Gogh's style quite well! :)
"Starry Night" is one of my most favorite artworks of all time, and this just captures the feel of that painting so perfectly. ^^
