Smiler chose this as one of his favourite Gromits on the Gromit Unleashed Trail - the swirly painting style of Van Gogh that Laura Cramer used on Gromit certainly appealed to him. I thought the details were great ~ the paintbrushes and palettes on the legs were amazing. I thought the bandaged ear was fantastic ~ Noah asked about it and then googled Van Gogh when we got home - just don't tell the kids it's educational to check out the Gromits! The positioning of Vincent Van Gromit worked really well too ~ surrounded by circular mirrors (and little lights at night according to my twitter timeline) makes the sculpture that bit more involved with it's immediate environment.
