Looking through sketching: Rembrandt self-portrait

Rather than reading or blogging I thought I’d give my sketchbook app a go and sketch the Rembrandt self portrait. Don’t think I did him justice (what comes of not drawing for 20years) but it’s true that you notice much more about a painting when you sketch it. For example the fancy trim on his shirt collar or that he has blue grey eyes.
