The Olive Trees by Vincent Van Gogh
This painting is an oil on canvas done in 1889, Van Gogh painted not just one version of this painting, but 18 different ones all done in Saint-Remy. Van Gogh was living in an asylum where he painted pictures of the gardens and when he was able to rome freely he went to paint the near by olive trees. What i liked most about this picture is the movement within the picture, its as if a strong wind is blowing everything to the right of the painting. I also like the combination of the blues and greens and the small portions of yellow that is also thrown into certain parts of the painting.
