Rembrandt portrait study



Pin It
I've always wanted to try to do an old master painting study, especially a Rembrandt portrait.
So I finally had the courage to give it a try.
I wish I had done it sooner, it was a lot of fun and I learned a lot.
You really have to pay close attention to the original and in the process get a better understanding of how the artist created the final painting.
