Charcoal study of a Rembrandt

 Here's a quick charcoal study of Rembrandt's "Old man in a fur hat".
 Charcoal is something I don't use a lot, however I do tend to purchase
it when I am refilling the pencil box. Subsequently I have
 discovered that I have quite a stock of it in the studio... 
..time to get more use out of this medium then.


  1. man nice! I quite like your technique when using charcoal, suits!

    1. Thanks JG, I think though I just got lucky, I need to work more at getting familiar with this medium.

  2. Interesting work Kev, it's fun to try an imitate old masters from a purely tonal perspective, gives a whole new appreciation for just how good they really were.
