Summer Session- Art Date 4: Nocturnal Notes


Vincent Van Gogh’s “Starry Night Over the Rhone”

Stay up late and sketch the town red!  Okay, maybe not just red, but any and all colors that lend themselves to the neon and moon glow of nighttime escapades.  Using the Van Gogh painting as inspiration, see how colors can light up the night or capture a moment like our friend, Justin Terlecki’s 4th of July print, entitled July.  Since the 4th of July is this weekend, try doing a quick sketch of the scene and, as night falls, lay in the explosive color! If you are a night owl, go out on the town and paint the city lights, or a country road and paint the night sky.  For this art date, try toning your paper with a dark color first, then layer in color with your favorite opaque paint markers for a colorful pop!
