Mona Lisa Drawing
Topic: Watercolor Class

Mona Lisa
"Mona Lisa" after Leonardo Da Vinci, by Catinka Knoth

Mona Lisa Coloring Page from Dover Books - Leonardo DaVinci Coloring Book

We gave a try at drawing the Mona Lisa a few weeks ago. I did this with compressed charcoal on smooth newsprint. I use this newsprint because its cheap. One can get the end of the roll at a newspaper printer's for a few dollars. It lasts a long time and one can also use the paper to cover banquet tables for a community supper.

As for the drawing - I started with a loose roughing in of the eyes and kept on roughing in - nose, mouth, chin, cheeks, hairline, hair. I kept it vague until she started to appear out of the mist. Her head is not quite long enough but I can live with it. I like the drawing even though its not exactly DaVinci's La Gioconda. Read more on DaVinci and Mona Lisa at Web Museum.

Coloring Pages
Topic: Putting up a website
Just a brief note here: I've finally started a page, on my site, of links to my coloring pages. They are illustrations from some of my pen and ink animal notecards I did several years ago. There are a few birthday cards, a get well, and a thank you. The 'cats doing winter sports' and the 'halloween cats' are also there. I will continue to add to them.
