Paint The Van Gogh Way 

Learn The Art Of Impasto Style Painting:

More popularly known as the ‘Vincent Van Gogh’ style of art.

Impasto is a technique used in painting, where paint is laid on an area of the surface thickly, usually thick enough that brush or palette strokes are visible. When dry, impasto provides a texture; the paint appears to be raised and standing out on the surface of the canvas making it appear like 3D art.
