STEP 1. You will start this lesson by sketching out the slope like shape for the cypress tree that makes up the painting. Next, draw the lining for the landscaped background.   STEP 2. You will now start sketching out the small village in the distance which happens to be Saint-Rémy. He painted the landscape in a view from the asylum towards north. The foothills and small buildings should be relatively easy to sketch. Just take your time, and you will do great.   STEP 3. It's now tome to start sketching out the shape of the cypress tree and the rest of the hillside to the left. Be sure to draw the tree the way you see it here. It's actually supposed to look like seaweed.   STEP 4. Add some detailing to the cypress tree, and then begin sketching out the swirls in the background which will make up the wispy sky. Draw a circle shape for the moon to the right, and then add more landscape lining for the foothills.   STEP 5. You will finish sketching out the swirling clouds that make up the night sky, and then draw the shape of a crescent shaped moon. Add the smaller circles for the stars and then you can start erasing all the guidelines and shapes that you drew in step one.   STEP 6. Here is what your finished replicated sketch of Vincent Van Gogh's Starry Night, should look like when you're done. It's now time to have good fun painting or coloring it in. If you want to see the actual original real life painting of Starry Night, go to the Museum of Modern Art in New York City.   Step 1. Step 2. Step 3. Step 4. Step 5. Step 6.
