Wheat Field with Cypresses 1889

I like this piece by Van Gogh because it amazes me how he was able to make the clouds in the sky with oil pastels on canvas. It somewhat gives the painting a relaxing feel because the clouds just flow through the sky very nicely. Although it has more of a cartoon look, the trees and the wheat have such detail just by using different values of greens and yellows. With those different values, the viewer is able to distinguish the texture of the trees.
