Thank you so much, Katerina, for honoring me by adding my link to your site, I will of course return the favour! I use "derwent" watercolour pencils and I do spray with "Daler Rowney fixative" and I haven't noticed any bad after affects! Thank you for your lovely comments!

Sorry for being late replying, Bill! Yeah, I think that May-Lin's dark, moody and lovely looks just kinda cried out for a Mona Lisa type theme! thank you so much, my friend!

Ha ha, sorry for the late reply, Pierre, yep this was done with the "new" hand, man, I tell ya, it was total heaven when those bandages came off! Thank you for your lovely comment!

Now I know what I will be doing during my lunch-break today: rush at the Louvre, and check that she is still there. Or they would have talked about it in the news, wouldn't they ? Great piece James. Was it done with your "new" hand ?

James - that is another stunner! I just love that idea! And you made this drawing so life-like. It is so BEAUTIFUL! Her (sad) look fits so perfect to the Mona-Lisa-painting. COOL

Art at its best.
