For my first piece I chose a painting done by Vincent Van Gogh. To me, learning about Vincent Van Gogh over the years I've always been fascinated with a lot of his pieces. Including the classic starry night. This painting is called "Three Pairs of Shoes" and I chose this painting because I love his use of color. It is also interesting how he is able to portray a certain look of texture in the boots. To me they look like leather and I imagine its because of the value and colors he used. Although this painting is simple I thought his detail with something as simple as shoes was fantastic. I like a lot of his work and this was a painting I had not yet seen.
