This is a blog about painting: specifically, representational fine art, generally, using oil paint. I think a lot about what I'm doing, and those thoughts about subject matter, technique, influences, frustrations and delights all show up here. It's all about the journey.

The Little Vermeer
Coming along nicely; I note that in the original he had a sort of highlight around the head to set it off from the shadow on the wall.
Study After A Maid Asleep, (Johannes Vermeer), work in progress (click on image for larger view)
Worked on this last night while watching (or listening to, anyway) the deliciously creepy movie "What Lies Beneath" on TV.
