Vincent Van Gogh’s A Starry Night is a spectacular painting. The painting seems cartoonish, but not in a negative way. It looks like how a child would draw a starry night. At the same time the use of dark colors gives the sense of loneliness that usually goes hand in hand with a night sky scene. It shows that it is almost out of control (Sayre, 2009). Van Gogh´s lines can be considered expressive lines. The use of his lines are all over and not consistent. The curving lines mirror that of the sky and create the sensation of depth in the painting. In Sol LeWitt’s Wall Drawing the lines are very equal and exact. It is also a beautiful painting, but to it seems cold. LeWitt uses classic lines. They are very exact lines going all ways. He is very precise and controlled with his paintings (Sayre, 2009). He puts the same amount of time but more thought on how his lines are going to go. I like the color choice that he made. LeWitt´s wall art seems to be calculated and cold unlike Van Gogh´s
