Girl with Pearl Earring, After Vermeer

Oil on Panel

I love portraits and Vermeer's Girl is one of my favorites. I painted this with a Grisaille (grey) underpainting and numerous glazes. Learned a lot with this one and want to do more portraits.  It was interesting and fun to do and I'm happy with the result. I also discovered how very difficult it is to photograph a dark reflective surface, so sorry for the glare.
