Excellent. I got to see the original one day, even though the museum was packed I had the room to myself. I walked in and it was to my right, turned and he was looking right at me. The eyes pull you in. The painter in me started doing calculations as I walked up to it, the wrinkles at the eye...how did he...

no. he didn't.

That booger. Alls he did was flip his brush over and etch those wrinkles in with the back of his brush.

I just walked on to the next masterpiece shaking my head.

It looks more like a Rubens. Good work!

Re: Rembrandt Study, WIP

Well done! I particularly like the way you handled the ruff. I'm curious - did you find this more of a challenge - or less - than when you first decided to paint this image?
