Crop of head and some stages. I'm falling in love with Rembrandt all over again. I usually don't like his women, I prefer how he paints men,armor,drapery and lighting. I loved this image though, I think it's his mother? I saw the image first in a book, that had more yellow tones which I liked much more so I am sticking to that. You can see the orig at http://www.royalcollection.org.uk/eg...t=405000&row=0 . I can't wait to start on the shiny embroidery!
It's FAR from finished but I just wanted to upload something. Please look at the fullsize images.
