A Little Rembrandt in Acrylics


This is a small rough little study I did of one of Rembrandt's self-portraits. I was doing it as example for one of my online students. I prefer to work in oils, but executing it in acrylics allows me to get much further in the limited time available with an online session.

I still have not yet mastered alla-prima in oils yet, so the acrylics are the best option for a speedy demonstration.

I do intend at some point to do him the honour of painting him in oils, which is more befitting an Old Master.
