Vincent Van gogh and Impressinism

Gogh has beautiful works from portraits of himself, potato farmers, and peasants; to painting various flowers such as his infamous irises; and to paintings of landscapes. These are some of Gogh's many works of art that he created by layering paint which is a well-known attribute of his style of painting.In addition, Van Gogh used most of his inspiration from his surroundings by painting his subjects as they were right in front of him. 

Van Gogh's self-portrait clearly shows elements of impressionism. The reason I chose this painting is because of the famous technique used. This painting remains to be one of Gogh's well-known paintings.
A lesser known painting created by Gogh, Head of a peasant still shows thick brush strokes and layered paint.For a period of time Gogh used peasants as his subject matter to develop his impressionistic style.
The potato eaters or the potato farmers are more examples of a peasant-like subject matter that Gogh use in a unique way. Gogh made the term "potato farmers" well-known along with his painting.
Today the most well-known painting completed by Gogh remains to be the Irises. The paint on the canvas is so thickly layered that viewers can clearly see each brush stroke.
The sunflowers, while they are made up of dull colors, seem to have a lot of life and movement. Due to technique used by Gogh (impressionism) the painter became very popular movement.
Eventually, Vincent started taking on landscapes. He would bring his canvas and paint with him to paint whatever he saw. Then Gogh would return to his shop.
The cottage lacks a lot of details, yet this painting still has appealing qualities. Gogh uses the same style of trees as he did in Stary Night.
Gogh used a lot of thick and loose brushwork while painting windmills. The people in the painting are recognizable but still blurry. Overall, the painting has important formal qualities.
