"Starry Night" by Vincent Van Gogh

“Starry Night” by Vincent Van Gogh displays the many elements of art. He paints what is seen on an average night, but uses originality by making the sky, town, and landscapes appear different than they do in several other paintings that I've seen. The work of art is made up of lines. The artist uses the lines differently by adding many twists and turns, giving the sky energy and wind. He also uses a wide variety of colors with shades and tints that help bring about a texture in the painting. The colors depict a blue sky with many stars, and add a yellow glow to the painting. The remaining colors are subtle to create a town beneath the sky. Overall, I think the painting is extremely dynamic and full of energy. It is one of the most intricate paintings in Chapter one and truly projects the elements of art with new ideas that form an eye-catching piece.
