L as in Leonardo

My letter L spread in my Alphabet Discovery altered book are about an artist I have always admired, Leonardo. I´ve been to Vinci (that´s in the hills around Florence) some years ago and have seen the house he was born in and the beautiful view he has had from there. I don´t know how much those circumstances have an effect on the art you produce.
I have used Lumiere paint for the background.

This alphabet book will be priceless. All the pages are just terrific. The colours on this page are very reminiscent to Leonardo's drawings. Just lovely.
