Mona Lisa Gaze

Let’s start this wonderful week with sketch-a-day watercolor painting from August. I named the work Mona Lisa Gaze because the painting resembles her a little even though I didn’t use da Vinci’s Mona Lisa as reference. There is something similar going on on the smize. My lady’s red eye expression is mysterious and kind.monalisagaze_painting_ellimaanpaa_2014

In the close up you can see that besides yellow and red watercolor I used mechanical pencil.

Goldfish Maiden

This painting Goldfish Maiden had many faces if you look at the making of -pictures below. It started as very fragile watercolor painting but then adding new layers of ink and gouache paint made much more rough and layered. I still like the result.
