This is a Rembrandt Study I did of Portrait of Nicolaes Ruts. It is 16 x 12 Oil on Panel. The comparison shows the original Rembrandt painting on the left, and my study at the right. I wasn’t trying to make a replica rather try to create the same texture and feel that Rembrandt has in his portraits. With this study I became a better painter.
Since I posted the Rembrandt study, I wanted to post another study I did in 2007 of Gustav Klimt’s painting Danae. This was a composition and a value study in charcoal. I drew the whole thing from scratch, no tracing or transferring of the image.
