Not sure if it's an accurate description of the lovely young lady but it was posted by Connie and looks kinda old-fashioned Dutch, perhaps around the time of the late and very great Frans Hals. What a painter he was.
I tried to emulate the bold strokes of the master in this oil sketch. It's on a dark gessoed ground using a limited palette. I was aiming for two hours but wiped the first effort off the board and did another two hours to get this.

She is superb, Harry, great work here even if it took the extra time it paid off handsomely.

I very much doubt if she is Dutch, but you got a great resemblance and it's a good painting!:)
