|The Suitor and Dog are Finished|
I have not posted any progress lately on the Ter Borch I am copying at the National Gallery but wanted to let everyone know that I am working on it and actually finished the suitor and the dog! Today I finally started the lady's satin gown which I have been looking forward to. It's always a challenge at first to figure out how Ter Borch painted certain things in this painting, like the satin dress, the hair on the figures, and the fur on the dog.

|After Three Passes with Glazes|
|The Dog with His Tiny Collar|
P.S. The lady is wearing six tiny pearl bracelets that had me screaming as I tried to paint them. I think Ter Borch was laughing at me today.
