Van Gogh Color Study

Finished piece :  Birds in a Field by Cynthia Ann Morgan
Wheatfield with Crows by Vincent Van Gogh

Color study for background of final piece
 I decided to just play with the color palette and color placement, so there is no real design to it….just a color study.  It’s only half pieced, it will be twice as wide when complete 12 x 24.  I used the color palette of Vincent Van Gogh’s Wheatfield with Crows.  At first I thought, oh…it’s just gold and blue.  But I found much more when I started to dissect the colors.

Thanks in advance for your comments!

The colors alone are worth looking at, but I also think it would make a great background for some applique. Oh, that's kind of what Van Gogh did- but his crows are quite small.
What a fun piece to make. Thanks for sharing.

I see a great foundation for another project. It's interesting as is and would like to see how you quilt it. Very pleasing colors.

You did a great job breaking down the painting into it's colors.
