Vermeer'in Dantelci Kadın resminde bulunan figürün önündeki el işinde ve elbisesinin yakasından nokta boyama tekniği görülür. Resme uzaktan bakıldığında noktalar bir araya gelerek boyanmış tek bir yüzey etkisi oluşturur. Vermeer'in kullandığı bu teknik daha sonraları İzlenimciler tarafından olgunlaştırılmıştır. #bimelce #sanat #bimelcejohannesvermeer #bimelcejanvermeer #johannesvermeerart #janvermerart#kadıntaciri #barok #johannesvermeer #girlwithapearlearring #inciküpelikız #hetstraatje #küçüksokak #dantelcikadın #dantelörenkadın #sanatsohbetleri #sanatokulu #sanatokulları #sanathayatı #ünlüressamlar #sanatogrencisi #sanatogrencileri #sannattarihi #güzelsanatlar #oilpaint #yağlıboya #ktü #trabzon #trabzonüniversitesi
