Vermeer-The Geographer

The Geographer by one of my heroes, Johannes Vermeer 1632-1675. I have been so interested in learning to glaze because I would like to capture this kind of beauty in my painting.

Oh, I love Vermeer too. I had the great pleasure to see some of his works in Europe (at the Rijksmuseum in Amsterdam, Holland, and at the Louvre in Paris, France). My favorite painting is the other scientist : "the Astronomer".
I admire his glazing technique and use of light !
Did you see the film "Girl with A Pearl Earring" ? I discussed about it on my blog, here : http://walkonwater.canalblog.com/archives/2007/09/13/6198937.html
