During the week Room 16 have been painting different paintings from different painters. When we were doing our rotations we went to Room 20 first, and the painter of the paintings that we were going to do is Danielle Hulme, to me I think her paintings were beautiful because of the different colours and the different types of patterns she uses. The painting that we painted was a red flower, the red flower was part of a picture that Daniella Hulme painted. When my painting was finished it did not end up as a flower it ended up as a red puppet, but I tried my best. But this painting that I have here is painting that I drew but copied from a photo on the internet I wanted to make it realistic but I put black on the top dark grey in the middle and light grey at the bottom.

Vincent Van Gogh

Vincent Van Gogh was born on March the 30th, 1853 in Zundert, a town in the southern Netherlands. He died at his own hand in France at the age of 37. The son of a protestant pastor, he was the eldest of six children and, by all accounts, had a normal life, and a happy childhood. Van gogh came from an upstanding family of clergymen, art-dealers, and military officers, and his parents wished for him to follow in this tradition. As a child, he was an insatiable reader. He most famous paintings were the, Starry Light, SunFlowers, Irises, Poppies, The Bedroom, Blossoming Almond Tree, The Mulberry Tree, and the Potato eaters.
