Just finished a fun new project for an Alaqua fundraiser. Their celebrity goat, Vincent, needed his portrait painted. I decided to channel his name sake, Vincent Van Gogh.
‘Looking through Van Gogh’s work, I chose two of my favorite and most familiar works for inspiration: Starry Night and Sunflowers.
Here’s the original photo of Vincent I used for the painting.
I first tested the idea on my iPad. I created this hi-res digital illustration with the ArtRage app. This image will be used for T-shirt’s and greeting cards. You can get Vincent here on canvas, tote or a pillow.
Using the digital image as a new reference, I recreated Vincent on a 24x30 inch canvas.
