Of course, the odds of you being able to do it are slim to none.
This is proven is a half-hour documentary series called The Forger's Masterclass, hosted by convicted art forger John Myatt (who looks a little like Van Gogh). Myatt did porridge in Brixton Prison -- which is probably still nicer than Alcatraz ever was, but still an awful place. No, I've never been there, but during my years being homeless in the UK, I met several people who did.
Anyway, this is the third episode in the series, where Myatt tries to get three art students to balance both passion and control by having them paint their self-portraits in the style of Van Gogh's blue swirly hatless self-portrait from 1889.
Although some of the biography information about Vincent is questionable and the name is constantly mispronounced, it's still an eye-opening program. It was well worth 28 minutes of my life. Enjoy.
