Writer Martin Bailey claims Vincent van Gogh's Starry Night might be loosely based on Katsushika Hokusai's
The Great Wave off Kanagawa; evident through the similar swirling of the wave and sky, the blue and yellow hues, and the fact that Vincent van Gogh was fascinated by and
 drew inspiration from Japanese prints.
Inspired by this fascinating connection between the two artists, I merged Starry Night and the Great Wave in this digital painting through rendering the woodblock print using van Gogh's short strokes technique and vibrant color palette.
