The faces of Da Vinci

There's a new blog challenge on the block called the Three Muses which opens its doors this week with a challenge about Mona Lisa. All art forms are welcome. My version is a digital one based on Da Vinci's own artwork.

Each image or texture has been lowered in opacity and blended with the other layers. A fair amount of erasing helped to blend in the main images, and eliminate too much yellow.

Wow! This is fantastic. I love that you have placed Leonardo centre-stage because without him we wouldn't have Mona. The whole effect is stunning.
Yes, we started early. The word got out and we were so excited that we just had to unleash the monster!!
Thanks so much for joining in the challenge. Hope to see you back here next week for "Doors".
