Alla Prima #6 - Velázquez Girl

Today I did an alla prima after my hero Velázquez.  It is simply a portrait of a girl with a white scarf over her head.  I love the original because it is so typical of Velázquez in its simplicity.  He makes it look so easy.  And it's one of those paintings that was clearly an alla prima.  The colors are limited, and the face is the most "painted" part of the picture, while the rest has that sketched-in look.  So here is my little alla prima after the Painter of painters.
