JSV’s Year 6 has been inspired after visiting the Mauritshuis to view the world famous Girl with a Pearl Earring by Vermeer. Students created their own modern day selfies with their chosen accessory.  Their painted masterpieces were made after careful observational drawing, mixing skin tones from primary colours and capturing light and dark tones. We think the results are very impressive!
