In the style of Leonardo Da Vinci

Mona Lisa painting in gold frame

Mona Lisa

I tried to do a copy of the Mona Lisa, just by eye.  No squaring up or any other guides to accuracy.  I did three versions – two were good, on was not!  The hard part was using cracking varnish when the painting was finished – You hve no control over where the cracks appar in the surface of the varnish.
