Girl with a pearl earring. By Alexandros Models.

Love this bust. Very interesting to paint. A lot of thought went into it, and wether or not to have two earrings, what tone to use, brushstrokes etc. In the end I simply went with something similar to the original palette. Hard to really catch the look from her, and spent a lot of time repainting the eyes. In the end I am happy. But not with the picture, really need to learn how to shoot the models.

    Really wonderful job you did on this! The brush strokes really compliment the subject here. One of the best art to bust translations I have seen!

    Hello Jacob,
    I still have to paint this bust in front of me.
    If I manage to paint it the way you could, I would be happy.
    A really very authentic painting reminiscent of Jan Vermeer.
    Gold !!!
