Girl with a Pearl Earring - 12" x 14" (Copy)

This is a copy of Vermeer's famous Girl with a Pearl Earring that I did last year. It's slightly smaller than the original and unlike Vermeer's which was done with an underpainting and 2 or 3 more layers on top this is done in one layer only over a white untoned board.

It was painted wet in wet alla-prima with no solvents (walnut oil as a medium). No one can approach painting like vermeer, but it was good practice and now sits on my wall.

Very nice... I have never thought to copy a masters painting, but I imagine this one would be particularly nice to do... ( not saying I am going to) but you have done a beautiful painting. well done.

This. is. so. good!!! Congratulations. What a beautiful painting.

I've read in this article about the history of colour blue that Vermeer used lapis lazuli for the woman's headdress in this painting. It made the work even more valuable in its time.

This is an incredible copy! Do you feel like you learned a lot painting it? I’m surprised you were able to copy the original so closely alla-prima.
