The influences that shaped my style have been a regular topic on my blog from the beginning, with this post about my brushes being one of my most popular articles.

But my artistic journey started well before all that, with this remake of Van Gogh’s Starry Night! My early experience with copying led me to encourage imitation and talk about artists who copy my style as well as a tech company that named a photo filter after my painting technique!
