Vincent Van Gogh, a Dutch painter was one of the most influential personality when it came to Western art. His work contributed to the foundation of modern art. He had created around 2100 artworks within a decade. Van Gogh loved drawing since he was a child who was quiet and thoughtful.
Van Gogh’s art is now being introduced to children and they love “Sunflowers” and “The Starry Night” specifically. Today we are going to share Eira’s attempt for Sunflowers.
In supplies, all you need it paper for drawing, oil pastels and a pencil for a rough sketch.
Let’s get started
Help your child to draw the sketch if needed. This is just for helping the child to make sure of the placement of each object. Now place the Van Gogh Art in front of them and let them take it from there. Oil pastels have a great intensity and that makes the art so lively.
Yellow Ochre will work a great way for the sunflowers. While emrald green can be used for leaves and red can help the flowers pop. Yellow Ochre is also used for the table and a light shade of blue has been used in the background.
Eira enjoyed making this artwork and learning more about Van Gogh. We plan to try Starry night sometime soon.
Let your child also explore the Van Gogh within them with this artwork.
