Iīd like to share my progress experiece.
There is a point iīve learned from this painting.
Rough and quick strokes make better illusion of reality
than trying to exactly paint it.
Iīve got 90 Rembrandt portrait set and 20 otherones that i bought as a pieces.
Here is one close up pic to face. Skin itself contain from 3-4 layers
of diferent colors which are not smudged but overlaid another color so you can still see strokes under.
There is no face on close up pic , just strokes that make illusion of face.
Size of portrait is 40x50cm
