An attempt at Vermeer's "The Milkmaid". This is oil on a small canvas. The photo is low quality but I'm too impatient to redo it.

love it, the blue pops a bit, which I only mention because everything else doesn't.
bravo!

Thanks Ceu, Jerry and Impulse.

When I get a chance I put a better image up. The flash made some colours look a little more faded than others (such as the blue). This is quite a challenge on a small canvas - too many fine details to emulate convincingly.
