Most of Vermeers paintings are on canvas and recently these canvas weave patterns were studied by x-ray. 
This painting, Girl with Red hat was exceptionally painted on oak. Vermeer put this oak panel down flat on a table and on the hat section, poured extremely diluted red paint out on the surface. It has dried up in many semi-transparent layer upon layer. The effect; when we stand in front of it, is shimmering and magical.
The painting can be viewed in the National Gallery, in Washington D.C. in the United States of America.
