I've always admired Vermeer and figured I'd try this one. I know it's not a perfect copy, but I learned quite a lot in the attempt and to me, it's all about the learning process. 12x16 oil on canvas paper.

Very well done but perhaps the whites are too white? You have caught the "feeling" of this painting, it's essence. And...THAT'S not easy!

A really good effort. The contrast is a little too strong, maybe not helped by the process of digitizing the original copy. The transitions from shadow to light are quite abrupt compared to the original, again this may be a result of digitising. You can obtain a high res copy from the royal museum at the Hague for the purposes of study only.

Keep up the good work.

The colors in the pictures of my copy are wrong, the painting is very close to the original color.
