I wanted to sketch some famous faces for my Sketchbook Project, then I thought whose face could be more famous than the Mona lisa?
Then of course the most famous of self-portraits had to be included!
Sketching these two famous paintings was really enjoyable and interesting. Instead of just 'looking', you notice different details and colours and you really see how the artists used their paintbrushes and created their strokes. They look quite good in my sketchbook too!
Both of these sketches are for the Arthouse Sketchbook Project 2011, my book along with thousands of others will be going on tour in the USA and then finally to the Brooklyn Art Library, New York. Not a bad journey for a little sketchbook?
