Ok..In a few words, I LOVE REMBRANDT's WORK.
I've seen some copies of Rembrandts in some sketchbook threads and stuff... SO, All of you guys who do master copies and other drawings that may be inspired by Rembrandt, Share =) wips too.
I'd love to see in wich way Rembrandt may be reflected on other artists and learn with that... discuss also.
Lets call this like a TRIBUTE THREAD TO THE MASTER =)
Good idea for a thread Here's one I dug up
panchosimpson : Nice =) your drawing is making me want to "move" my lazy ass and make some copies of rembrandts etchings and later aply the technique in front of the mirror with self portraits
Here is one i did at Oporto's downtown in summer2007.. i had no support, i literally did it on the midle of the street
made with soft pastels on canvas 50x60
David Leffel is a very good painter from what i've seen of his work, I probably wouldn't go as far as saying he is a modern day Rembrandt, though.
I really like the sketch you did here.
Awesome!! I just got back into Rembrandt
David Leffel is very evocative of Rembrandt, but I've noticed that he doesn't exhibit near the range as Rembrandt did.
I don't have any recent/decent work that was inspired by or copied from Rembrandt, but this is a great thread.
tree marks - greenwood's sketchbook
I went down to the depot and I looked up on the board,
You know, it said it's good times here,
... But it's better on down the road.
Rembrandt is great for studying chiaroscuro, brushtrokes, maybe some narrative paintings (you have to know the bible),also maybe some hatching but he is too free to really be able to copy..apart from that his drawing skills are not that impresive...yes he had a great imagination..but sometimes his figures are out of proportion..beautiful faces though..I have seen a few Rembrandts i was not that impressed..Oh yeah Leffell is a nice painter..i have one of his books ..he gives you useful advice. I will do a copy of Rembrandt soon..i need to restudy the master,great thread by the way.

only for Rembrandt!
Rembrandt would have been an excellent storyboard artist. I love his drawings even more than his paintings, and I love his self portraits.
