Starry Night was painted by the world famous artist Vincent Van Gogh. This is a very beautiful artwork. It is not so much a bright coloured picture, it can almost predict that he was painting at night time. In this painting the technique he used had got to be just little strokes and not just dragging the paintbrush across the paper, It looks like he was painting over a town during the night as people slept. He always used a different variety of colour it was either bright colours or dark colours.
