I accidentally stepped on this painting; right on the face too. How it survived I don't know. I feel as I've gotten better at painting I've gotten worse at photographing said paintings...

This study was done with a relatively limited palette: Ultramarine blue, burnt sienna, yellow ochre, and white. The darks are a mixture of the sienna and ultramarine. If you could only by 4 tubes of paint I would suggest these. Take out the yellow ochre if you can only buy 3.

After Vermeer's " Girl With a Pearl Earring". Approximately 8x10. Oil on sized watercolor paper ( sketchbook entry)
