Illustration Friday - Dejavu

I wanted to enter Illustration Friday this week but I just didn't know what to draw so I did a sketch instead - weird thing is, it just feels really familiar to me, like I've seen it before somewhere....I cant explain it...

Apologies to Leonardo da Vinci
I had such fun with this, I have been really busy so thought it would be good for a real quick little line sketch but once I got into it I was enjoying the process and I became really lost in her face making lots of corrections and seeing little things I had never noticed before. She did end up quite dark in this one, but Im happy with it.
The painting is so beautiful, oh to be able to paint like the masters...

While I am here I would love to say thank you to Sussana who gave me a stylish blog award - it means a lot and my recipient post for it will appear soon. Janet
