So you want to paint like Rembrandt? Should you?


So you want to paint like Rembrandt? Stay
tuned to this video! Why would you want to paint like Rembrandt ? Is it because
you like his style? Is it because you like his fame? or is it because he’s
recognized as one of the top painters in history in the whole world? In this video
I’m using Rembrandt as an example but it applies to whether you want to paint
like Rembrandt or Vermeer or Renoir.. it doesn’t matter.it applies to all of them. Like every person whose job depends on the on the public, you will have to face
a lot of criticism and rejection. But you shouldn’t try to paint like Rembrandt
and you shouldn’t try to play like Renoir water or anybody to get their approval. The key to being a painter is to be yourself. You have to have your own style. You can be inspired
by Rembrandt, you can be inspired by Renoir or whoever …but you have to have
your own style and I’m sure that if you admire certain painters the influence
from them will show in your painting. But it doesn’t have to be the same. Painting
like Rembrandt is not being perfect painting like Rembrandt is being
Rembrandt! Let’s take an example that is very clear and is current, which is Odd
Odd Nerdrum. Odd Nerdrum is a great painter probably the greatest painter in the
world right now and he admires Rembrandt. He was his inspiration!
However, he has his own style and his own topics, and he has more elements that make
him different. Odd Nerdrum would not be as great if he exactly copied Rembrandt.. he
would be a copyist not a painter. Odd is a true painter a true artist he has
developed his own style heavily influenced by Rembrand. This will sound
tacky, but it’s true: the key is not your destination but how you get there. Think
of each one of your paintings as a stepping stone towards that ideal
painting style that you want to create in your mind and on the canvas. Then, one day, sit down and look at all of your paintings
and you will have found your masterpiece which is your own development as an
artist. This road takes a lifetime… so…relax and enjoy…this is the most important thing! Maybe one day I get to see your stepping stones and you can see mine..!! But…
you know… you’re right he was freaking dang good!!! Anyway!!.. I have been ranting long enough.Thank you very much for coming to see my video …Please, subscribe and leave a
