This very first Advent Calender will be a stunner, heavily influenced by Vincent van Gogh's beautiful yet moody palette in "STARRY NIGHT". A fantastic source of (colour)inspiration by a true Master. I have been visiting the Van Gogh collections in The Netherlands this summer to do colour study on original van Gogh paintings & palette themselves.

ABOUT STARRY NIGHT BY VAN GOGH:
The painting is a night scene with yellow stars over a small town with hills. It is a view from an imaginary point over a village with a church tower and a flaming cypress on the left and olive trees on the right against the hills. For the use of complementary colours, Van Gogh went back to Delacroix.
The painting is often associated with the words of Vincent van Gogh: "Why, I wonder, wouldn't the bright dots in the sky be as easy to reach as the black dots on the map of France? to Tarascon or Rouen, we use death to travel to the stars." He wrote this in a letter to his brother Theo which he sent from Arles on 9 or 10 July 1888.
Van Gogh painted the piece at a time when he felt a strong urge for religion.
