Van Gogh’s Wheat Field

Van Gogh Wheat Field with CrowsVan Gogh Wheat Field with Crows diagram To make a Vincent Van Gogh art project, try imitating his Wheat Field with Crows. It shows a dramatic, cloudy sky filled with crows over a wheat field. The simple layout is perfect for practicing layers of oil pastels to see if students can imitate his wonderfully sketchy look.

To get a similar look to my sample, I recommend trying the oil pastels I have linked to below. They happen to come in the perfect shades needed for this particular project.
