Artists studies – Vincent Van Gogh

This course has already begun

Artist study courses are designed to show you something of the working methods and approaches used by a great master of painting from the past, so that you know how to create similar effects to the great painters whilst gaining a deeper understanding of their art.

Anyone who is looking to create vibrant paintings will at some point look to the works of Van Gogh for help and inspiration. He has one of the most recognisable styles in the history of painting. His bold linear brushwork and inventive use of colour make for incredibly vibrant images. So why not sign up for this course and put a little more zing into your own paintings.
