Van Gogh discovered that he could use colours to express an emotion. He intensified the emotional charge of his works by combining colours to create harmony on the one hand, or contrast on the other. Which lead to this amazing #VanGoghSky.

Van Gogh was enthusiastic about the colours of the Mediterranean Sea: ‘..has a colour like mackerel, in other words, changing – you don’t always know if it’s green or purple – you don’t always know if it’s blue – because a second later, its changing reflection has taken on a pink or grey hue’.

Van Gogh’s intention was not to portray himself as realistically as possible, for him this was a way of practising portrait painting.
