Jonathan Van gogh Cafe Terrace at night

I am painting one of Vincent van Gogh paints called  Cafe Terrace at night. This painting was painted in September 1888. It was his fast starry starry night painting.

The things that I think are the same are the tree,the,sky and the door. Van Gogh’s Cafe painting looks much better than mine.  

The thing that is not so much the same is the chairs. I think it the chairs because one of the chairs a brown but on van Gogh's Original painting he has light brown. I tried to make it the same but it did not work.    

The mood in this painting is calm. I think its calm because he used light colours like yellow, orange, light green and more. He used dark colours too but most of the painting is yellow. The  Cafe Terrace at night is a real place in france. This place is a very very breeze Cafe on a breeze street. They are a lot of people walking in the background.    


  1. Hi Jonathan,

    I think this piece of art you have created is amazing, in fact it caught my eye as I walked through the art exhibition on Tuesday! You have made your painting look so much like Van Gogh's original, well done. 'Starry Night' is a beautiful painting, the reason I like it is because when you look at it you feel like you are there.

    I like what you say about the calm mood in your writing, I agree you do get a calm feeling from the painting, I like how you have described WHY the painting gives a calm mood.

    This is an excellent blog post. Your writing is interesting to read and your pictures help explain what you are saying.

    Great work Jonathan,
