The picture shows my entry for the 2019 competition called by the Rijksmuseum in Amsterdam which had 8,390 works submitted. It marks the 350th anniversary of Rembrandt’s death. As I like to be inspired by the old masters I decided to enter with my interpretation of one of the many self portraits by Rembrandt. Instead of his palette I gave Rembrandt a tablet or iPad showing a photo of the Rijksmuseum.This is to signify where many of his works are being kept with a major exhibition taking place this year.
As always I learnt a lot from interpreting his work. Together with the many books by contemporary realist artists I have studied, these kind of paintings help me improve my understanding of what it takes to create a good painting. The painting is in acrylics on wood size 40x30cm.
