Reflections on Vincents olive trees

A couple of Vincent Van Gogh's olive grove paintings are worth looking at again firstly because olive trees are not the easiest thing to paint or draw. I struggle with varying approaches - to outline the shapes seems to be my favourite approach, but Van Gogh puts a lot of detail and strong colour into his. It might have been in summer when he painted his olive groves as the ground looks parched.
