  1. Vermeer is one of my favourite artists. That girl looks as though she was painted yesterday; so fresh and natural. Thanks for introducing me to Art Project.

  2. Hmm, Blogger didn't like my first comment, so I'll try again :)

    This is such a beautiful painting and a warm and natural smile. The use of light is often amazing in Vermeer paintings.
