Johannes Vermeer (undated – approx 1665 )
I’m not entirely certain whether or not I like this. I just couldn’t get the eyes right, and I just realised I forgot to tint the edge of her headpiece.Dammit.
barbie, doll, vermeer, dutch
Wonderfully done…I recognized it immediately as being related to the Vermeer work.
I am with Cindy!!!! That is my most favorite painting by my most favorite artist. I think you did an excellent job capturing the essence of the original. I love this!! So very cute!!!
Yeah but you are going somewhere with this concept – keep it up. Mike
Thanks all – I just like things to look a certain ‘way’.. like I see in my head. When will I learn that my mind has no grip on reality….
She’s been using botox! ;O)
perfect lighting! excellent attention to detail.
II feel this is well done!
I’ve several “copies” in College Art shows and such. I recognized from the thumbnail, elements of both you and Vermeer, and I started laughing before even the full image came up. It really stands out in the feed along the top. Suggests the power in the original Vermeer work. I hope you do a long series of “Barb Classics”, such as Grandma Moses, and maybe a Rockwell one, plus many European classics. Would be interesting to see how your mind solves the problems.Dick
I’ve done a few before – this is the second Vermeer ( ahh Mr Vermeer, we meet again ) but by far the hardest. I was thinking of doing a Rockwell, but then it would end up being a Barbie massacre – because there is no way I could let that type of domestic tranquility go unbludgeoned.What I would love to do, once I’ve got more of a doll collection – is ‘Raft of the Medusa’ by Gericault.
