Hmmm.... I'm pretty sure traditional rembrendt lighting is short lit. Not broad lit.

Or is it just defined by the triangle of light on the cheek? Which seems absent here?

Still a nice portrait but not sure it is rembrandt lighting.

It's defined by the triangle on the opposing cheek

It's still a nice portrait.

Yeah, it's nice. But I wouldn't see it as a Rembrandt portrait necessarily.
