Here is an super small acrylic painting made by my father (rembrandts self portrait) and a digital painting i'm doing (Portrait of Nicolaes Ruts) Im learning so much doing this one. Rembrandt puts it so simple.. yet so complex!
Rembrandt is great for studying chiaroscuro, brushtrokes, maybe some narrative paintings (you have to know the bible),also maybe some hatching but he is too free to really be able to copy..apart from that his drawing skills are not that impresive...yes he had a great imagination..but sometimes his figures are out of proportion..beautiful faces though..I have seen a few Rembrandts i was not that impressed..Oh yeah Leffell is a nice painter..i have one of his books ..he gives you useful advice. I will do a copy of Rembrandt soon..i need to restudy the master,great thread by the way.
Hello. Im new here as you may realised.
Im 16 years old and im from Brazil, and my drawing is very poor compared to yours...but i love Rembrandt and Caravaggio, so im posting a drawing that i made based on a rembrandt's painting. Please, can you critique it? ( sorry about my bad english)
