Here's one I did a year later (2000). It's a study of Rembrandt's Self Portrait
. This time I have the original. The actual drawing is really small, I enlarged it a bit for the post. I used colored pencils once again (since I'm partially color-blind, I only use a limited amount of color).
I guess you can say this is me studying Rembrandt, studying himself.
When I look at it now, I think the study would look better if the lines on the hat dissappeared in the center at different areas--showing contrast. Live and learn.
