Rembrandt

I have had this painting started for a long time and have not finished. I new to glaze it until the image is obscure and then bring it out it the dark. The painting is made from a Rembrandt print. I had the idea of copying his prints into paintings in order to learn how to paint an who better to emulate than Rembrandt. I think I will continue doing this but I will work on smaller images. I can use those images in my classes too. The kids love to see me in action. They also love to draw from real paintings not from books.
