Karen Mitchell - Drawing in the Style of van Gogh

oil pastel drawing

I've always admired and been inspired by Van Gogh's style because it's so liberating - he lets go of the minutia and instead focuses on color, shape, and movement in a composition. I chose to pay tribute to "Van Gogh's Bedroom" in particular because the bedroom is such a personal space, and I think it speaks of the artist's true nature. His painting is vibrant, clashing, and oddly restful at times, and that is what I sought to replicate.
