In this early painting, the artist chooses to render his own vision rather than stay true to nature. In the same vein, in his later works he places a premium on individual self-expression.

Do you think it is acceptable to start a sentence with 'in the same vein' as a near-synonym to 'similarly', 'likewise' in a formal piece of writing?
