Starry Night

A few days ago, I painted a copy of Starry night by Van Gogh


it was unfinished in this picture, but doing copies of artists really let’s me know what they’re all about.

Van Gogh had a mental illness (and I’m doing an art project on PTSD and Illness) so I looked at his work. Apparently yellow is a therapeutic colour, and he put It there to calm him?

Anyway, Starry night really is a beautiful painting. Imagine if we could see a real starry night with huge yellow blinding stars.

I found something relating to stars : Dark SKY PARKS – they’re parks which have no light pollution so all you can see is stars.

I really want to go, but they’re only in the US *-*  take a look:

if you’ve been wondering where photographers in the US go to shoot star pictures, this is where.
