Starry Starry Night

This painting was painted by the famous Vincent Van Gogh. He painted Starry starry night in the year 1889, one year after he painted Sunflowers. He is a very talented artist.

Blue is the main color for this painting, but the colour that stands out and makes it hopeful is yellow. Shining gold stars stand out from the blue exaggerated sky. The contrast makes it very cool, that's when it's bright up the top, then dark down the bottom.

There are different kind of objects. Like the cypress tree, and a church. There is also a small and peaceful village, shiny gold stars, swirly wind, and a bright crescent moon.

Can you guess what two objects stand out on the foreground? Well, it’s the cypress tree and the church. This is because they both are pointy. These two things balance out the painting.

Starry Starry Night is one of my favourite Vincent Van Gogh paintings. It surely looks better then, his other painting Sunflowers.
