Here's my Mona Lisa!
I did not want to make a perfect reproduction of the famous masterpiece, but I'm not sure I succeed in bringing my own "touch".
In fact, it was funny but I think I spent enough time doing this :).


Otherwise, if I were Mona Lisa, I would strongly desired eyebrows for Christmas!

Fantastic! :cool::cool::cool: I love it. Changing the medium and yet maintaining the feel of the original is pretty impressive because it works so well. Lots of control.

Leonardo would be amazed because of the technique and 'materials'. :D:rolleyes:

Very good.

Thanks to you two ! I'm honoured :rolleyes:

Yes! You have succeeded in bringing your "own touch", and with it
retained the feel, the essence and the mystery of her!
As for Lisa desiring eyebrows, Leonardo's or Salai's would have been a bit much, if
you wish to belief that theory! Thank you, for not giving the Christmas gift of eyebrows!
I really like it the way it is, it's very well done!
Take Care,

I think you really captured the style and feel of the portrait.
