"I'm trying to figure out how he created this landscape," the 42-year-old painter says as she studies an 1887 canvas depicting the Seine River and a scene outside Paris.She and some 70 other artists are working on what is billed as the world's first feature-length animated film made entirely through hand-painted canvases. Entitled "Loving Vincent," the $5.3 million production aims to bring to life both Van Gogh's works and his tortured soul, to mark this year's 125th anniversary of his death – often held as a suicide – from a gunshot wound.Its creators are the Oscar-winning BreakThru Productions, which won an Academy Award in 2008 for the animated short "Peter and the Wolf" based on the story and music by Sergei Prokofiev.Known for his bold colours and rough, vibrant painting style, Van Gogh is considered one of the most revolutionary painters of the 19th century. In all, the 80-minute film will require around 56,000 key frames.More than 100 Van Gogh paintings were used in the film, said Marlena Jopyk-Misiak, who supervises the painstaking artwork.
