I started drawing this wallpaper with a very different idea in mind - I simply wanted to draw a night sea. Somewhere in the middle of the process, I found myself putting a lot of short small brush strokes, as some kind of meditation. And it started resembling the famous Van Gogh painting. Well, why not? -- I thought -- let's make a tribute! So here it is, a tribute to wonderful Starry Night by Van Gogh. I tried to make it similar in style and subject, but at the same time stick to my style. This is why the strokes are much smaller and the colors are darker. One of the reasons I love drawing dark night wallpapers is the fact that your monitor emits light. It really brings moon and stars to life! They literally shine on your screen.
