Research: Portrait

I have been researching Rembrandt’s portraits of old men concentrating on the usage of light in them. I believe that the most important fature of his portraits is the way he uses the light, this makes his painrtings so unique. I also admire the way he paints old men hands. I am preparing to use contrasting lighting in my portrait of an old man in the style of Rembrandt.
