 :yippee: Hi Cyril.  I love this.  It is amazing what one can learn from copying old masters.  I especially like the strokes on the hat.

Aloha, Cyril!  DITTO to what Lynn just wrote!  I love Rembrant's work and you gave me an idea to return to pencil drawing more often.  Like the horse drawing I did yesterday will help me to possibly give me confidence to do the painting. I can see tonal values clearer as in what you've done in Rembrant's portrait.   O0 -Liz
