one of the most beautiful colors I know, intence and
so so so blue...
Cornflower blue has been used of lots of painters trough the years and van Gogh was one of them. I love the way he paints, his vivid colors and shapes, a true color boost! Makes me serene and happy at the same time. Thanks Vincent :)
Vincent Willem van Gogh
"I am hard at it, painting with the enthusiasm of a Marseillais eating bouillabaisse, which won't surprise you when you know that what I'm at is the painting of some sunflowers. If I carry out this idea there will be a dozen panels. So the whole thing will be a symphony in blue and yellow. I am working at it every morning from sunrise on, for the flowers fade so quickly. I am now on the fourth picture of sunflowers. This fourth one is a bunch of 14 flowers ... it gives a singular effect."
Letter from van Gogh to Theo 1888
