    you should take a little time and do some reading on these topics
    before you ask about them

    Van Gogh certainly did not only use yellow and he shot himself in the
    stomach I believe.

    Quite right Craig. Seth should read some of Van Gogh's letters to his Brother Theo - they are the product of a highly intellegent and well read individual with a heart of pure gold. It was only later that his mental illness kicked in and that was really in the form of a malady during which he had lucid and completely sane periods under the watchfull eye of Dr Gatchet and the staff of St Remy hostpital who allowed and encouraged him to paint. The letters at this stage are heartbreaking - making you realise that this was a human being we are talking about, sensitive, loving and lonely, yet brave like a lion.
    From Gegarin's point of view

    I could be mistaken, but wasn't VanGogh a large proponent of the first color wheel?
