I’ve started making a copy of this beautiful portrait painting by Rubens, with a view to learning about his underpainting and glazing technique. I realised its quite similar in subject to the first portrait I added to my youTube channel, so it feels fitting that its also the first on my new Patreon channel. All my real- time videos will be there from now on so please have a look patreon.com/mattharveyart
I will try and get a bit more information about this painting when I have time, but for now here are some images of the work in progress.
The video of the second hour of the first pass is available on youtube:
And this is how it compares at the moment. Glazing next!
