I am guessing the process he used to create this piece is by dabbing paint onto the canvas instead casually painting with it. This gives texture to the painting rather than

Painters like Vermeer opt for classic scenes of daily life‚ i.e. “genre paintings”‚ as we can see it when observing his Het Schilderkunst. The work of art depicts a simple studio‚ in which a man –maybe Vermeer himself?- paints a woman‚ identified as Clio‚ the Greek muse of History. On the wall behind‚ a large
