June Study - Girl with a Pearl Earring by Johannes Vermeer

Oil on Canvas - 17.5in x 15 in - circa 1665
Kept in the Mauritshuis Gallery in The Hague
Sometimes referred to as the "Mona Lisa of the North" or "the Dutch Mona Lisa"

Hi everyone!  Please humor me this month, it's my birthday month!  This has to be one of my favorite paintings of all times...
Do your best and if you have trouble with the face, just keep it blank and do the rest.  It's meant to be a fun exercise, not a chore!  Have fun with it!

A beautiful rendition by Adrie, great job!
