Covid Creativity: 29Jan2021

by Olga Harhaj

 I completed this work in January.

I have always been a great admirer of Vincent Van Gogh’s post impressionistic style of painting. Being more of a realistic painter myself it was a challenge for me to paint something out of my norm but I felt it had to be done.

I picked Van Gogh’s Cafe Terrace at Night as a practice piece because of the evening scene and the colours he used. I added my own interpretation of the painting as you will hopefully notice, to make it stand out as a conversation piece. I call my version “The Time Traveler”.
