Fields in France after Van Gogh

To begin this painting, I laid down Light Molding Paste to create a highly textured, absorbent surface. Then I riffled through my box of oil paints to find some greens I don't normally use. Viola! I love the colors, contrast and patterns.

Another "after VanGogh" painting. I haven't been impressed with Van Gogh until I reproduced these two paintings. His understanding of composition and perspective is impeccable. I have learned a great deal by copying these landscapes.
