Girl With The Poor Hearing
It's about 15.5 x 11.5 inches, Daniel Smith paints on Arches paper. As you can see it's a bit of a twist on the classic Vermeer painting 'Girl With A Pearl Earring'. I've used a few of my new iridescent paints on this one, on the sleeves and a bit on the head dress. Of course the effect doesn't come out on my scan, but they are quite effective when used sparingly.
I did another painting when I first received them and I must admit I went a bit over the top with this one.
Tomorrow I had better start on some framing. I've been putting it off as my garden workshop has been like an oven lately. Thankfully it may just be bearable again now.
