The inside story
Van Gogh was largely self-taught, beginning his education with a powerful focus on figure and landscape drawing. He found he was able to use coloured chalk, charcoal, reed pen and pencil to quickly capture images before later adding watercolour detail. He also experimented with lithographs to reach a larger audience.
Van Gogh used muted colours in these early years to suit his subjects (peasants and manual workers) but his move to Paris in 1886 showed him the work of the Impressionists and inspired him to use more colour. He also began to experiment with broken brush strokes and pointillist technique (see Self-Portrait with a Straw Hat, 1885).
