Van Gogh Brushstrokes

When we examine the brushstroke technique from the painting in question, it is very similar to the brushstroke technique and method of Vincent’s earlier works. 

Take a closer look at some of Vincent’s brush strokes below, and compare them to that of the painting in question. Vincent painted fast, which is almost certainly reflected in the image on the right.

Some of the brush swirls on the painting in question are almost identical to that of View of Paris as seen below, while others are reminiscent of his short brush strokes followed with a swish as in Hill of Montmarte with Stone Quarry. (They also resemble works Vincent painted with Anton Kerssemakers.)

The water well strokes from the painting in question are almost identical to the sail boat masts in The De Ruijterkade in Amsterdam, while Loom with Weaver painted in 1884, reveals the same light green base color as used in many of Vincent’s paintings and additionally the painting in question.
