Digit-al Dozen Does: Art - Van Gogh Sunflowers

For my last art piece I went with Van Gogh's Sunflowers.  There was a reason behind this choice!  If you are a regular reader of my blog, you know that I have a small, okay very large, love of everything Dr. Who.  One of my all time favorite episodes is Vincent and the Doctor.  There is so much emotion tied to this episode and every time I watch it I can't help but cry.  It really is a moving episode. Just look at this clip:



And here is the painting:


I did my best to interpret this painting, but it is difficult to capture Van Gogh's talent!

I started with 2 coats of Illamasqua Load.


For my design I used a nail detail brush and the following polishes: OPI Chopsticking to my Story, Hi Pumpkin, Sinful Colors Pull Over, L'OREAL Hyde Park and China Glaze Liquid Leather.



No top coat, all about the brush strokes!



It doesn't look exactly like the painting but I really like how it turned out!
