Third Portrait

First time I approached the wood from four sides, several times. I have a new way of calibrating and it works very precise. It takes some time to set up, but I think it is worth the effort.

The face and especially the eyes are a bit less sharp but the head is considerably smaller due to the fact she has more shoulder than previous portraits. Emphasis was also more on the hair this time.

Juffer van De Lairesse

Die schilder laat zich blindelings door zyn begeerte vangen,
En blyft aan ‘t Jufferschap en zulk gezelschap hangen;
En schildert vorders al zyn leevens dagen niet
Dan Jufferschap; het is alles Juffers wat men ziet.

Inspired by a poem of De Lairesse. Made of an old wooden toy block. I hope my sons will not miss the block.

I still want to reduce the size of the foot, but I don’t have the right tools for it now.
