After Rubens

Did a study of a Rubens portrait yesterday... enjoyed it immensely. It's nice to do a painting when someone else has already done the heavy lifting. Oil on canvas board, 9x12":



It was painted alla prima, using a student palette of raw umber, raw sienna, burnt sienna, yellow ochre and "flake" white. I was interested in Rubens's picture making, not his brushwork (obviously).

I think I'll do at least two or three more of these, hence the thread. Crossposted to Oil Painting. Thanks for looking!

Re: After Rubens

I really like your approach with this llawrence. I think I need to stop being cheap and lay the paint on thick for a few studies too!
Thanks for sharing
Darius

Re: After Rubens

Saw this in "Oils", forgot to say how much I like the brushwork.
