Sunset at Montmajour, Van Gogh
This is the newly discovered painting by Vincent Van Gogh called 'Sunset at Montmajour'. It is from the sunflower period of his artwork, and depicts a landscape. I chose this painting because i found out about the newly discovered painting the day it happened, and appreciate his work. The colors used in this painting are warm, and mostly green and yellow tones. In the places where he used blue, you can tell right away and the eye moves towards those places, because blue and yellow are complimentary colors. He uses large brush strokes throughout the painting, which gives the illusion of movement as well.
