Fritz Wagner copy of Vermeer's Girl with earring

Girl with Earring after Jan VerMeer. This was painted actual size, attempting to match ground, paint vehicles and brush work. The painting was copied on a scanner for reproduction here, so some of the drapery and background were cut off.

One of the advantages of reproducing artwork with a computer is that you can show the details of brushwork, which to an artist, are often more interesting than the painting seen as a whole. In real life, you cannot SEE your own brush work without holding the picture up to your nose. That is hardly a good way to contemplate things! But here I can see the brush work up close in a comfortable way, so it is a constant temptation to show close up Detail.
