Help with my first copy - Girl With a Pearl Earring.
After my current paintings are finished I'm interested in starting my first copy in oils. I know everyone does Vermeer's Girl with a Pearl Earring, but it seems relatively straightforward compared to other potential copies. I think I could be pretty accurate with it and still learn a lot along the way. I think of it as my gateway copy.
My question is what colours are generally used to paint it when people copy it in oils? I know the Dutch masters used an earth heavy palette with only a handful of colours but which pigments would I need specifically? Hopefully I can pick what I need up in the next couple of weeks if I don't already have them.
