Van Gogh was famous for his thick and dramatic brushstroke, which expressed all his emotions and gave a sense of movement to his works. He often painted directly from his paint tubes (Impasto) and in the last 70 days before his death painted one canvas per day. He painted with a sense of urgency, a desire to capture the idea, which put him under constant stress.
Most of Van Gogh's canvases were made with worn brushes and painter's knives (a kind of small spatula), which gives matter a preponderant place.
The reproduction of a Van Gogh is a texture painting, but also a gestural painting, the use of the knife allows a very dynamic approach to creation.
Most artists work the painting "flat", although there may be a multitude of layers of fine paint. This is the glazing technique, widely used in painting, which consists of superimposing thin layers of paint until the desired effect is obtained, by superimposing layers of different colors.
This is not the case for Van Gogh, who paints with his guts. Apart from his early paintings (when he lived with the minors), the Van Goghs are colorful and use a lot of material. With his brushes and knives, he cuts into the canvas, not hesitating to mix the tones directly in the heart of the painting.
We use the same techniques as Van Gogh, reproducing his works in three dimensions - width, height AND thickness. Once the sketch is done, the colors are applied with a knife, to respect the density of the canvas, as Van Gogh did, and we do not hesitate to put as much paint on it as necessary.
The rendering is exceptional, and we understand, seeing one of our reproductions of Van Gogh's painting all the work of the artist. Each stroke of the knife, each movement of the brush, all the gestures necessary to achieve a fantastic result and a picture with shimmering colors.
Largely self-taught, Van Gogh began by reproducing prints and reading books on the art of painting. He considered that to become a great painter, one must first know how to draw - which made sense at the time; a little less today!
It was not until he was satisfied with his drawing skills that he began to use colors and his thick palette became a hallmark of his style.
Van Gogh's drawings are special in that his representations of characters, lights and landscapes can be admired without the addition of colors. He drew using crayons, black chalk, red chalk, blue chalk, pink pen and even charcoal… although he often mixed several.
He also produced almost 150 watercolors. Although not typical of his brushstroke, they smell like Van Gogh because of their raw and vibrant colors.
In 1882 Van Gogh began to experiment with lithography and created a series of 10 works: nine lithographs and one engraving. The Potato Eaters was scheduled for sale and he made a lithograph of it in order to reach more people.
At the beginning of his career, Vincent Van Gogh painted with black and melancholy colors which reflected his models at the time, mainly miners and peasants. However, his style took an abrupt turn when he moved to Paris in 1886 and began to be influenced by the work of the Impressionists and Neo-Impressionists.
He began to use a palette of reds, yellows, oranges, greens and blues, and experimented with the broken brushstrokes of the Impressionists. He even teased Pointillism, as is evident when looking at the Self-Portrait with a Straw Hat from 1885.
Van Gogh was also greatly influenced by Japanese art, and he painted the outlines of objects with thick black lines, which he filled with thick colors. His color choices depended on his moods, and occasionally he restricted his palette, as in Sunflowers, which are almost entirely painted in yellows.
In 1888 Van Gogh moved to Arles and lived for some time with Gauguin. Gauguin bought a ball of burlap and the two artists used it as a canvas, which led them to paint thicker and use more intense brushstrokes.
Van Gogh began to imitate Gauguin's techniques which led him to create a more attractive and less realistic style. He also began to react emotionally to his subjects through his use of colors and brushes. He deliberately used colors to capture emotions, rather than realistically copying them - no artist did that back then!
He said, “Rather than trying to reproduce what I see directly in front of me, I make an arbitrary color choice to express myself more powerfully. "
