I love this style as well! I just wanted to share my friend's comments on this piece:
"Very good take! Although in my mind, it's less impressionistic and even MORE Van Gogh-y in my mind. But Van Gogh is a post-Impressionist :-P (Okay, I looked that up on the Wiki, but I never considered ole Vinny to be a true impressionist, he's more abstract and textural). A Matisse would've had more definition, whereas Van Gogh would've had more this sense of JUST color.
The fact that we can HAVE this conversation let's you know how good this work is! SO AMAZING!"
Want to be friends? I want to be friends, this is amazing. I love impressionistic styles, but I've always been closer to Van Gogh than the almost Monet / Rembrandt style you've got here. It's sooooo amazing.
Oh man. If only I hadn't already spent my birthday money on Red Lobster! Delicious grab has *nothing* on this! Classy, classical pony art that I can hang in the living room. What more could a girl dream of? I suppose I'll have to settle for making it my desktop background?
Seriously, though. This is really nice work, and I would totally show it off all over the place. And people say Bronies are weird. Hah! Weirdly talented!
wow! thanks! honestly I'm not all that in love with this painting :/ I'm happy with how the trees and sky turned out but somethings off about it.. maybe I'm my own worst critic but I have been pretty surprised with all the great positive comments (like your lovely comment )
perhaps I'll give the Van Gogh style a shot again soon....
