How Do You See The Night Sky- Brittney Primozic

The night sky never looks the same whether is be something as subtle as the stars or something as obvious as the clouds. There is always a difference. Not only that but everyone perceives it differently. Different colors. Different cloud shapes. Different painting styles. 

Vincent Van Gogh had an interesting perception of the night sky. He has distinct brush strokes and doesn't blend the light of the stars smoothly but has it stop more abruptly.
Edvard Munch had a much more subtle approach to his brush stroke. He blended his colts and lights a lot more.
Birge Harrison saw the sky as much darker therefore he painted it with black and grays and not multiple shades of blues. Also he saw the cloud as a bit more defined. There is also no land to split this painting its all sky.
Ernest Ferdinand Oeheme saw the sky as mostly thin clouds with some stars poking through and the moonlight lighting the building as well as the surrounding grounds.
Johan Christian Dahl had a much more detailed painting. His brush strokes are less obvious compared to Vincent Van Gogh.
Fanny Churberg visualized the sky very different from the others. They used blacks and whites and more of a dabbing technique instead of a long brush strokes. The white draws your attention to the sky which also take up most of the the painting.
George Copeland Ault pictured the sky as one solid color with out stars so that how he painted it. His clouds are very solid and not see through. He painted them much thicker rather than to make them appear thin.
Casper David Friedrich focused more on the moon rising and how its light brightened up the night sky swaying the color away from blue or black. By using a color other than blue or black the focus is on the moon on the horizon.
N. Teixidor pictured the moon being so bright is almost seemed like day. Brightening up the earth and reflecting off the water. He seems to mostly have used horizontal brush strokes on both halves that are separated by the land in the middle.
Dwight William Tryon portrayed the moon peaking through the thick clouds with out seeing the moon and has the sky take up most of the painting.
