Vincent Van Gogh, Sunflowers

This painting by Vincent Van Gogh was done in 1888. I. It consists of different shades of yellow with some green for the stems and centers of the flowers. The line behind the vase is a bit crooket but it's meant to be the table the vase is on. Some of the flowers look a bit droopy, perhaps dead on the bottom. Most of the flowers are a golden brown shade of yellow. They stand out enough from the background to be identified as flowers, but I'm not sure if painting the background and table shades of yellow similar to the vase and flowers was a good idea. Nothing really seems to pop too much. But the color scheme definitely reflects a sunflower.
