Girl with a Pearl Earring Painting

Hey readers,

Today I found my finished oil painting-my altered version of Dutch painter Johannes Vermeer’s Girl with a Pearl Earring.

In my painting the ‘girl’ looks more like an old lady… I actually didn’t intend for her to look like that but I’m just telling everyone that I did it on purpose.  I painted the headscarf a greener shade than the original, because I thought it would contribute to a more mystical atmosphere. Her lips are painted pinker than the original. I wanted her to have a weird, modern edge.

It didn’t turn out exactly as I had planned, but oh well. In my defense, I’m more of a watercolor person. This was the first time I had ever done a proper oil painting on a canvas. I guess it’s an okay-ish first try? Right..?!
