The Renaissance genius ...

... on the late Finnish ruska leaves.
"I love those who can smile in trouble.' -Leonardo da Vinci
You see Leonardo and his famous model Mona Lisa on the autumn leaves, which I picked up in the woods when I was walking there. I decided to use them in some of my art. So at home I scanned the leaves and cropped with my photoshop program. The ruska colors were faded yellow and brown/red. I chose two famous Renaissance characters as the head role to my art journal page. I altered the colors of their photos to match the main color combo. I made the background  with filters and overlays and added other images on the page. Then finished the work typing the Leonardo's words on one of the leaves .
I'm linking the page at the Art Journal Journey challenge theme 'My favorite color is October' chosen by Tracey this month.
Thank you for visiting and the time to leave a comment.

'Renessanssi-nero suomalaisessa myöhäisessä ruskassa'
"Rakastan heitä, jotka osaavat hymyillä vaikeuksissa." - Leonardo da Vinci
Näet Leonardon ja Mona Lisan syksyn lehdillä, jotka poimin metsässä kävellessäni. Päätin käyttää niitä jossain töistäni. Kotona skannasin ne ja rajasin taustasta fotoshopissani. Ruskan värit olivat jo haalistuneet keltaisiksi ja punaruskeiksi.
Valitsin art journal-sivuni päähenkilöiksi Renessanssi-ajan kuuluisuudet Leonardo da Vincin ja hänen kuuluisan mallinsa Mona Lisan. Kuvat löytyivät netistä ja muunsin värit työhöni sopiviksi. Taustan tein useista kerrostumista ja tekstin kirjoitin kuvankäsittelyssä yhdelle ruska-lehdistäni. Linkitän sivuni teemaan 'Lokakuun suosikkivärini'.
Kiitos käynnistä, ja kommentit ovat aina tervetulleita.

So creative and fun to use leaves you collected. The colors are wonderful as are the figures and quote. This is super cool and thoughtful, Sirkkis.

This is such a clever page Sirkkis. I like how you chose the Mona Lisa and Leonardo for your smiling people. Adding the leaves really makes this page so autumnal. I especially like the angel flying in the wine and coffee. Thanks for sharing with us at AJJ for Tracey's challenge, and I hope all is well with you. Hugs-Erika

I was impressed by the beautiful leaves you picked on your walk, and then to use them (after scanning) in your art is incredible. They make beautiful backdrops for both Leonardo and Mona Lisa, as well as the backdrop for Leonardo's quote.Simply stunning and oh so beautifully done, too.

I agree this page is so clever, the introduction of hues with those Autumnal tones is quite striking. Mono Lisa looks amazing this way. Beautiful work, so happy to see another superb page join me @ Art Journal Journey this October.
Hugs Tracey xx
