German Portrait Finish

DONE, ZOMG! Lots of good things learned here, like a little bit about rendering jewelry (and maybe I'll do it better next time). In looking at various portrait styles from this general time period, I notice a really big difference in technique, regionally. I'd like to try the dabs-o-paint method that Vermeer used...that's what I call it anyway, since once you get up close to it, it's really just little spots of light and shadow that make up this incredibly realistic painting. Something to experiment with...:-)
