Starry Starry Night Critique

Starry Starry Night was created by Vincent Van Gogh in the year 1889. This oil painting is 73x92.

This painting has a wavy cypress tree in the foreground, it almost looks like flames burning in the night sky. The peaceful yet gloomy village, has lights shining through the tiny windows. Beyond the horizon is the bright starry night.

Blue is the main colour used in this painting. Both the sky and the village have this colour in it, but the village is darker.

Looking at this painting, I notice one pattern. That pattern is a swirl, which is in between the golden glistening stars.

Although this painting’s features are exaggerated, it’s quite beautiful.

  1. Hello Gloria,

    That was a good piece writing and I love the way you explained what kind of art it was.

    Keep It Up!
