Greetings fellow peeps from the artistic cloth!
A question I had in Regards for this study is.. How is Rembrandt able to pop out the painting forward without the use or a rim light in this painting?
I chose "Portrait of Rosalba Peale" By Rembrandt, because he uses deep contrasting values in this painting. Making it (or at list I think) very dramatic without much effort. Also.. he tends to "imply" details in the fabrics; that read really well and is seen today in many video game character concepts.
The Study took 1 hr. This was really challenging for me due to the fact that face in general are a challenge.. but if i have time i can properly do them... I found out after i first spent 15 minutes sketching out the details. that i probably had better spent time establishing the overall shapes first. At 30 minutes i stared to freak out because it felt I was not gonna make the 1hr Max deadline. So i started making broad strokes of paint and discarted the sketch. However then i felt at a loss since i had no visual indications of the distance between eyes nose and mouth.. and well.. shit happened lol. but pushed through (Hopefully Rembrandt excuses the duck-face lips) and finished by the 1hr. mark.
Looking forward in reading yer responses
