As promised in yesterday’s “comments,” here is my copy of Vermeer‘s Girl with a Pearl Earring. In future, I will take you through my process–a quite involved one, but it speaks for itself. It is not for everyone’s temperament, and does require much patience. Certainly it isn’t the only method I use, but it does produce good paintings; and of course, there are all the planning, sketches, and design preliminaries one goes through. More on this later, as I bring it together for you in a logical and, what I hope will be, an easy to understand method.
