I think this painting has its own merits without reference to the Rembrandt. Both the style and lighting is so very different, as they should be. Yes I like it.

I should think the faces might be difficult to paint at this size.

Yes, the faces were extremely difficult to paint at this size. I used a canvas about half the size of Rembrandt's. I should have gone bigger...next time, perhaps.


Thanks, for your comments.

Yes!!! Finally, the perfect painting!

Only one critique of it means it must be perfect, right?

I don't know why some paintings don't get many crits. Maybe people do find it hard knowing what to say. If I can make an overall comment about your work, you might like to try getting more involved with your own painting rather than the original. Get into the flow, a painting has to be from you, so find some self expression. In this way you'll find the work becoming more fluid.
