Olive Trees with Yellow Sky and Sun - Description

Vincent van Gogh loved to paint olive groves. They allowed him to explore his interest in contrasting colors and textures, as he wrote to his brother: " Oh, my dear Theo, if you saw the olives just now...The leaves, old silver and silver turning to green against the blue. And the orange-coloured ploughed earth. It is something quite different from your idea of it in the North, the tender beauty, the distinction!" (source: http://www.webexhibits.org/vangogh/letter/19/587.htm). The asylum where Van Gogh was staying was surrounded by olive groves, providing an inspiration for the troubled painter. This painting, Olive Trees with Yellow Sky and Sun, depicts an olive grove beneath a brilliant, open sky. The sun in the center of the painting is ringed in orange, which appears in the ground below. The sun seems to radiate its color in bright, outwardly reaching strokes fanning out in all directions. This is reminiscent of the stars and moon in Vincent van Gogh's famous "The Starry Night." The gnarled trees bend and weave beneath the bright sky and are anchored in the orange and red fertile ground below. The leaves of the olive trees are rendered in bright circles and vertical strokes, executed in heavy, deep green paint. The cool blue mountains in the center of the painting offer some respite from the bright heat of the sun.
