Mini Mona Lisa

This is my first ever attempt at a miniature scale painting, and I was quite pleased with the result. Mona Lisa is exactly 12th scale to the original, and done using watercolours. It may not be an exact likeness, but I think most people would immediately guess what it was. Recreating a piece by Da Vinci was probably a bit over-ambitious, but never mind! The frame was kindly made by Ray of www.minibuilder.etsy.com and is simply wonderful! How pleased was I when that came in the post! I'm going to have to paint loads more now, merely so I can justify buying more of his excellent frames.
Cheerio,
A-M
