“And that furthermore in my own technique I have the same ideas about colour, even thought about them when I was still in Holland. Cornflowers and white chrysanthemums and a certain number of marigolds – see here a motif in blue and orange. Heliotrope and yellow roses – motif in lilac and yellow. Poppies or red geraniums in vigorously green leaves – motif in red and green.” – Vincent Van Gogh
