This is another Rembrandt portrait this time working enlarged. His texture is wonderful. I can't get the texture in a quick painting in acrylics but I still enjoyed trying.
This is the weekly hint from my other blog art by the books
David Kassan is an amazing artist who is now having a Kickstarter fundraiser for a palette
If I were an oil painter I think I would get it because I love new things for my art. His palette is unusual in that it is vertical. His point is, a vertical palette means the light falls in the same manner on the palette as on the painting. I am not comparing myself to him and I really don't think that having his equipement is going to instantly make me as good as him but then you never know. I have a little palette which I now keep vertically and it is easier physically so you don't twist to get at your paint. I am now very aware of how repetitive motions come back to bite you.
Watch the video - I think the palette is a brilliant design. And since I know you are going to ask because I did - the paint does not drip down but the glaze does so I just put that on the bottom.
