About this painting
My first painting. This was a copy of an obscure van Gogh work of the same title, painted after an invitation by an artist to join his online art group. The group held regular themed exhibitions, and our first challenge was to paint a version of a van Gogh picture.

Technical details
Painted in a similar style to the original, the surface texture of the trees in particular is thick and rugged.
