Painted Van Gogh Vinyl Figure

I went to see the Van Gogh exhibit at a local-ish museum a few weeks back and picked up a blank DIY vinyl Van Gogh figure produced by Today is Art Day.

He sat around for a bit while I thought about how to paint him and I finally got to work on him this week.

His face is inspired by his self portraits and his jacket is my (and countless others) favorite work of his “The Starry Night”.

Materials wise, I didn’t use anything fancy. Just lots of thin layers of craft acrylics.

Did you see Loving Vincent? It was soooo good. This looks like something that could go with the movie.

I love Vincent van Gogh! As a kid I didn’t but nowadays I really admire his work so much! It is great how you represented his style on this little figure. Sterrennacht (starry night) is one of my favourites too, but my favourite is Amandelbloesem (Almond blossom).

How awesome :smiley: I love that you painted him in Van Gogh’s style :smiley: Great that they sell blank ones, even though it’s a bummer for those who can’t paint. But I’m sure they also sell painted ones XD
