Van Gogh’s Drawings

After a recent tutorial, my tutor mentioned that my hieroglyphic like mark making in my drawings inspired by the work of John Piper reminded her of Van Gogh’s Drawings and thought I should look at them for reference. I have always been interested in mark making in drawing and the different ways that artist’s have represented texture in their drawings.

I developed my own kind of marks from the lines and shapes I saw within John Piper’s rocky valley, it is of use to be introduced to artist’s work that is built up of marks and contextualizes my drawings.
