Mona Lisa: 2 worksheets

From www.arteascuola.com
With these two worksheets we can play with the famous Mona Lisa by Leonardo da Vinci. The linear drawing of the most famous portrait in the world is available in two versions: one ancient, like the original, and one contemporary, revised in a modern look.

How could you use these worksheets? We can color them, invent fabrics and decorations for clothes, realistic or imaginary landscapes for the background. A proposal could be to shadow the face and hands in pencil, imitating the shades from the original Mona Lisa. The clothes can be colored with crayons or markers in a fanciful way.
The backgrounds could be colored on the worksheet or painted in on a drawing pad. In the sample the figure of the Mona Lisa has been cut out from the worksheet and pasted on painted backgrounds. In one case, we see a Monna Lisa in old style, posing in front of a hilly landscape. In another case we see a Mona Lisa in a contemporary style, in front to a big city
