Ralph Van Gogh is from http://combustus.com/illustrator-nicole-rubel/ and the painting was inspired by Vincents Bedroom at Arles. Please reply here with your description of the painting and I will try to help you with any grammar mistakes. You can also practice by describing the original Vincent van Gogh at viewtopic.php?f=6&t=12732
