Hello, this is master reproduction ive just starter few days ago. Ive seen it in Haggs Mauritzhois where girl with pearl earing also hang and just cant resist. Its so beautiful and precize panting! Everything on canvas has its purpose and mean. Flowers represent diferent season of the year, it actually blooming in diferent season. Watch represents time - time of life, mortality.
This paintin has twin actualy. That one is with iris add and almost same composition.

hope you will like it too.

here is my progress.

I tought about how flemish painters reach such enormous detailing in their paintings. Is it done from grisaille or by layering ? The finest detailing is done at last, is posible to see on paintings but those things like venation on leafs or butterfly wings, flies etc. seems to me impossible.
But im new to this style of painting, this is my first, hope ill get to know with more i do.

Woe, talk about detail, you must have the patience of a saint. This is looking really good. Can you post a link to the original, for comparison.

Curious - what are you using for the background over the original earth colored wash? Is it black, or are you making a cool or warm black by adding ultramarine.... or are you using umber-ultramarine combo...?

Thank you Allison, details are school to me cause actually dont know how to do it, so constantly learn during painting. Almost 1 month paint this piece and my knowledge was more than doubled. Biggest mistake or difference is my technique itself. In flemish style painting lights are not painted directly but done with imprimatura. Cause to there are not brushstrokes on paintings and cracking is also low due the time. Ive used more classic academic development ive learnt recently.
To black: my black is mixed from raw umber and ultramarine because i dont have van dyke brown or bone black probably originally used.

This painting is different from other paintings from period, it do not have transparent background to brown as many times seen on others painters. Also has many details faded during time (poppy leaf on bot right, small leafs mid left next to butterfly.
Actually afraid of coloring, ill try my best.
here is also original rijksmuseum scan:

Just started with first glaze. Could somebody help me with it, please?
My idea is to build main colour base, just have been done, next glaze deep the darks and after that lights. opaque details at the end.
Is this premise right or any better advices? thank you for that.
