Rembrandt (1606–1669),Landscape with Cottages under Tall Trees. (“The Puff of Wind”), Pen, brown ink and brownish wash on parchment

An attempt to imitate a drawing by Rembrandt. An image below is my drawing. Compared to my first experience imitating a drawing by Van Gogh is, in Rembrandt’s drawing the lines seems to be continuous but there’s a sense of control. Insight gain from experience is once I touch the pen on the surface I need to move it continuously until I get the shapes. I also need to control the quality of the lines and after sometimes, I need to cross-hatched to create a darker tone. Try it and it works!
