Slow And Steady

How did Vermeer do it? How did he get such realistic-looking folds on the garments his models wore in his paintings? Did he soften the line breaks, those transitional areas where the plane changes? I should go back with a soft, clean dry brush and see if that works before the paint dries. Anyway; all work was on half of the waiter's jacket today, and it was incremental, millimeter by millimeter of observing the changes in value and color. I hope it "reads" correctly.
