In the footsteps of VERMEER

Girl with a Pearl Earring is Vermeer’s most famous painting. It is not a portrait, but a ‘tronie’ – a painting of an imaginary figure. Tronies depict a certain type or character; in this case a girl in exotic dress, wearing an oriental turban and an improbably large pearl in her ear.

Johannes Vermeer was the master of light. This is shown here in the softness of the girl’s face and the glimmers of light on her moist lips. And of course, the shining pearl.

Today we're going to unleash your inner artist and you will recreate this famous painting.

We start sketching, colouring, collaging and/or drawing and painting with all kinds of materials : Pen/ ink / gouache / pencils.

Be creative and go home with your own Vermeer!

Looking forward meeting you!

Creative regards,
