Work in progress

Trying my hand at portraits again, I took this image from Wet Canvas, a brilliant site for photo reference. This is oil on acrylic paper, which has two layers of black gesso. I have to do a bit more blending and I have just realised the pose looks very much like Vermeers “Girl with a pearl earring”, so I might give her a pearl earring and make it my version of his brilliant painting, not that they can be compared!
