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.
Video of my graphic art drawings and paintings portfolio that I used to create. I stopped doing this kind of art because it had a negative affect on my vision. Most of this kind of art doesn’t allow any margin for error, so every dot, stroke, or fill in, needs to be done with precision which also takes a lot of focus as well as eye strain. Most of it is done with ink pens of different size and with gouache paint. Some other elements included metallic paints, gold leaf, luminescant paints, and graphite. Some of this art is decorative, some is applicational, and some is political.
