Learn from Master III

An attempt to imitate a drawing by Rembrandt. The most challenging parts are mastering the line and strokes. I have tried my best to be as spontaneous as I can to imitate the style, but still feeling rigid. I’m not good at the portrait, but at least, in attempting to capture the main features of the face, will make me aware of which part to tackle in drawing the portrait. For me, an eye is quite challenging too. By trying to copy the style of Rembrandt, the lesson learned is capturing the expression of the figure. I’m also having difficulty in determining the proportion of the figure.
