In the style of Van Gogh

So - you are probably wondering what this is - it's a beginning.  Somewhere (I can't find it right now - but I will) one of the blogs I follow is having a Van Gogh challenge.  I have always loved his paintings - he was indeed a self-taught artist.  He often did things "wrong" but he broke the rules in such a glorious way.  My inspiration is The Sower.  I think, however, mine will be a beach scene.  As of now I have just slopped on paint with a palette knife.  That is the only knife I will use in this process - no matter how frustrated I get!  Letting it dry now while I walk the dog.  Will post again as I go along.  Thanks for taking time to look.
