WALT- recreate a post-impressionist painting

‘The Starry Night’ is one of Van Gogh’s most famous paintings. Using 2Paint A Picture on Purple Mash recreate your own version of ‘The Starry Night’


Van Gogh was a post-impressionist but make sure that you choose the Impressionism option when it appears in ‘2Paint A Picture’.


Experiment with the brightness of your colours by changing the amount of water you use. Click on the icon to change the amount of water.


Think carefully about the colours and use ‘The Starry Night’ fact sheet to help (you will find it under the challenge). I have also painted an example to show you.


You have been set it as a 2Do. Once you have saved your work your teacher will be able to admire your masterpiece!



Write a short paragraph to evaluate your painting.

Think about:

  • What colours you used.
  • How you made sure that your painting looks like the original.
  • What you like about your painting.
  • How you could improve your painting.
