Today's challenge is inspired by Artwork. A few weeks ago, I watched a Doctor Who episode where they go back in time and hang out with Vincent Van Gogh. It was actually a heartbreaking episode and it solidified my love of Van Gogh's work. For today's challenge I picked one of his the most famous paintings - The Starry Night. His work is simple, yet stunning. Here's my shot at it.
I started off with a dark blue base coat. This was probably a little bit darker that it should have been.You'd think with all of the colors I own I'd have something a little closer...
From there, I blobbed on white paint as the foundation of the stars and clouds.
Then I layered on each of the colors.. I won't take you through all of them.
I took pictures without a top coat just in case I ruined it all. I actually kind of like it without the top coat..
With a topcoat. I wish I had room to put all the little buildings on here. Alas, my nails are not that large.
I tried to make the big star a little bigger on my thumb. Second major thing I would have changed is the color orange I used. Too dark/reddish.
