Interesting Video on Van Gogh

I found out about this fascinating video from Marion Boddy-Evans who does the painting section on about.com.
It was made by http://www.vangoghsstudiopractice.com/. It is in Dutch but has English subtitles as well:

Late in his life he started experimenting with very wide formats.  He also had a lot of wet paintings to store.
Watch:

A Wider Horizon.

Van Gogh in the flow: Van Gogh took great pleasure in painting, making clear artistic choices but also leaving some things to chance. But did he really mean to make those strange splotches on his painting of a landscape at twilight?
