The Pocket Rembrandt - updated Now with more Rembrandt!

J.R. asked for more Rembrandt drawings:
These are from Rembrandtpainting.net





I have been enjoying J.R.'s sketches (as I'm sure many of you have) and it reminded me of this post from Lines and Colors.
Something fun to try. Keep experimenting and having fun, find what works for you and practice, or as Mark Kistler of the "Draw Squad" would say DrawDrawDraw!

Yes! I started sketching with the materials he suggests in that post. It's not as nice as a real walnut ink wash but he's right that it's a pretty good second and super easy to just toss in a bag.

Those brushpens hold up nicely and I carry a sepia micron pen, a could brush pens and a sketch book almost everywhere I go.

...you'd think I'd have more sketches.

I'm right there with you, the single most consistent piece of advice I hear is to carry a sketchbook and sketch every day. Every time I hear that I say to myself "Ya know, I really should start doing that."

Wow! That's all I can say when I look at a Rembrandt pen and Ink drawing. Thank you for posting that particular image. I doubt there is a soul alive that would not respond to that style of work -it seems universal and timeless. More please!

Thank you very much for posting more as well as the link included. Looking at these makes me want to do nothng but draw, draw, and draw more!

Well, guys, I guess there are some advantages to being a "chick." I can get away with carrying my sketch materials where ever I go.

For an anniversary, we received a "Rembrandt on the Old Testament" coffee table book. Fantastic!
