Copy of Van Gogh's Fruit Field


A copy of Van Gogh's painting, but not in the color. I used blue tone here. I don't quite like the original greenish yellow.

I am always wondering how Van Gogh creates those curly stroke in his painting. I tried with brush, but couldn't get it right. I have those sticks for watercolor painting, somehow I try to use it and it gives me this curly lines of tree trunk, branches and texture in the ground fantastically.. I never expected that the watercolor sticks can be used in oil painting as well. Such a nice discovery.
