In Cafe-Terrace At Night, there are some people on the terrace in the bright lamplight, and also can see a couple who are walking forward to the cafe together. I think, Van Gogh was trying to say about his loneliness. Looking at the people in the cafe, probably Van Gogh, who was painting the picture on the side road by himself must be lonely. He undoubtedly was thinking about his sister and about his solitude.
In the painting, Van Gogh painted a night painting without black, with nothing but beautiful blue and violet and green and in this surrounding the illuminated area colors itself sulfur pale yellow and citron green. Those colors are not very related, but they are contrasted by each other. I think it is much beautiful because of that contrasting. He aslo painted by oil, not by other usual paints. So it made a painting much realistic by expressing of the sight of night.
When I first heard about this project, Vincent van Gogh was in my mind. I don't know it was because he was one of the most popular artists out of very few ones to me, or not. Anyway, I looked for things about his paintings. Then, eventually, I picked Cafe-Terrace At Night, because it attracted me at the first sight and I have thought about this painting that it was a very nice before. After searching this painting, I knew that using oil, even though it needs very hard work, if I use good colors, I can express more than what I expected. So in my personal opinion, I think this painting is very special.
