|Tags: how to draw a painting|
Description: The face you see before you now is of a woman that was painted by a Dutch painting artist known as Johannes Vermeer. Not much is known about the painting and no one knows if Vermeer did the painting out of commission, or if he did the portrait out of imagination. As the title of the painting says, it's is a depiction of a fair skinned servant girl who wears one pearl earring. Her head is slightly tilted as she glances at the painter in a pose of simplistic beauty. Girl with a Pearl Earring is also known as the 'Mona Lisa of the North' as well as the Dutch Mona Lisa. The painting is in the Mauritshuis gallery in The Hague. It was painted in 1665 and it is an oil on canvas painting. I hope you enjoy drawing Girl with a Pearl Earring, it is one of the worlds most recognized works of art.
