File:Vincent van Gogh Starry Night.jpg


Vincent van Gogh's painting Starry Night. Taken from the file below, and minimally adjusted to eliminate some over-intensity, and yellowing and attempt to bring out the true nature of the colours ie Prussian blue, Ultramarine, Cobalt and Cerulean blues all occur in the sky. Burnt Siena brown in the tree, and Crimson on the stripy house. These colours are lost in auto-digital corrections.
