This guys asks about Tim's Vermeer by suggesting 'Consider the source'

I've decided I'm also a skeptic.
Initially one of my bumps was when he decides to make his own pigments.

Crayola sketch wizard. Pretty cheap. 

And one person nails why skepticism is called for. Vermeer worked using glazed layers. Tim is Alla Prima. The bottom value study of Vermeer guided every other drop of paint that went on top. Something not even mentioned in the doc.
The original transcription of the scene, the bottom layer? Maybe an aid here or there.
Like the article writer points out parallax and distortion are constant headaches with Tim's tool.
My bet is Vermeer's only tool was a grid to peer through. Matched by a light grid on canvas.
