Looking for Rembrandt

Following the formation of Chris Knight on his way of making portraits like the old masters of Flemish painting, I tried to make a portrait in the pictorial and luminous spirit of Rembrandt

A very strong portrait work and classical association not only in the title but in the essence and total style of this photo. I admire the skill of the author and professional postproduction of the picture (except for too smooth skin of the forehead); however, may be my impression would be interesting. I look at this beautiful photo of a beautiful girl for n-th time and think that she is very, very tired and sad. The black background aggravates this impression, unfortunately. I understand that there may be different moods, but do not think this impression (private as it is beyond a doubt) would be the purpose... Others' impressions may differ, of course... But to my mind, it would be very interesting to see a portrait of this model in a different mood. Sorry if this is not "scientific" comment. Seeing forward to... :)

Un viso con dei tratti somatici molto ben delineati. Splendida la luce che sei riuscito a catturare con altrettanto contrasto....complimenti

A face with very well defined somatic features. Beautiful light that you managed to capture with equally contrast .... congratulations

Lovely woman and very sensual face expression. However I am not sure that Rembrandt would have loved the way it is post processed. The sculpturing of the head with light and general coloristics. In his portraits indeed brown is frequently present, but the general palette is made more vivid by additional colours. Also making the skin very polished is something that hurts portraying personalities.

L’objectif est atteint : on dirait vraiment une peinture dans le style Rembrandt ! Le contraste de lumière est très fort mais permet quand même de voir tous les détails dans les ombres et notamment les plis de la robe.

The objective is achieved: it really looks like a painting in the Rembrandt style! The light contrast is very strong but still allows you to see all the details in the shadows and in particular the folds of the dress.
