"Wheatfield with Crows (detail)" by Vincent Van Gogh
Unlike me, real painters use lots of paint. Vincent really piled it on! He worked with great speed and passion and it really shows. Fact 1: Van Gogh never sold a painting in his lifetime. Fact 2: his brother, Theo, supported him throughout his career, including buying all of his paint. I have two brothers but I have to buy all my own paint. I prefer painting on my iPad - less messy and no drying time. I don’t think Vincent would have approved.
