A different Mona Lisa

A few years ago in 2006 when I was familiarizing myself with Photoshop I was doing experimental work discovering different ways to use the software. While listening to the radio Nat King Cole's "Mona Lisa" was playing. It was a hit song in 1950. I was inspired to do a few versions of a Mona Lisa type of character described in the lyrics. I used multiple layers in this composition isolating the line in certain areas and sweeping my brush strokes for a unique effect. Touched this up a bit prior to posting. She's based upon someone I used to now in my college days.
