Van Gogh Journal – Pages 29 & 30
Yesterday, I decided to create these pages with a Japanese theme. I thought about what I wanted to do on these pages for days.
I have always loved Vincent’s painting called “Japonaiserie – The Tree (After Hiroshighe).” I made a copy of it to use the Japanese lettering on the left page.
Then I also used the Japanese people in the background of his painting called “Le Pere Tanguy.” I really love that he put them in his background to look like paintings hanging on the wall behind where his friend sat.
I used teal acrylic paint for the background and some muted turquoise acrylic ink for the darker blue. Then I drew and painted the Lotus flower and leaves with acrylic inks also. The rest is washi tape in a couple of patterns and the little black bird is cut from a piece of washi tape.
I had a ton of fun creating these pages! I am working on a couple of other things at the moment, too. I hope you are all having a great week!
Have a wonderful day! 😀
