Starry Skies & Bridge of Sighs by Amy Letts is a Van Gogh-inspired acrylic painting on Canvas Paper of the Bridge of Sighs in Oxford. The title is a conceit, because the sky is not based on Van Gogh’s famous Starry Night, but his other landscapes such as “Wheat Field with a Reaper” where you might notice the palette is actually more green.

This view of the Bridge of Sighs is actually acieved by lying down on the pavement next to it! This creates a dramatic perspective with lots of strong diagonal lines. At the right time of day the sun glints through the windows and creates rainbows.

The artist Amy Letts uses a limited palette of Yellow Ocre, Process Yellow and Prussian Blue with Titanium White. The artist invites viewers to embark on a visual journey where reality and imagination intertwine in a harmonious dance of color and form.

In this captivating artwork, the iconic Bridge of Sighs is transformed into a mesmerizing scene inspired by the renowned artist Vincent van Gogh. The arched bridge stands as a symbol of architectural grandeur, bathed in the dreamy hues of Van Gogh’s signature style, the sky above is ablaze with vibrant brushstrokes.
