Or Leonardo trying different things. He was a big experimenter with painting techniques.

Painting on a wood panel instead of a canvas (the Louvre painting) was a technique he did not try again (as far as we know).

↑ Indeed, and he experimented too much. Some works are beyond repair. While medieval tempera and even Van Eyck's oils still look fresh. (A problem with old oil paintings is that they become transparent, you see the artist's pentimenti.)

What strikes me with the Isleworth Mona Lisa is that she seems much younger, while the Louvre ML already sports some unhealthy face fat. :mrgreen:

@ Anax:

That picture has been heavily manipulated:
  • the sun doesn't shine through branches;
  • you can notice a lot of symmetries, in parts of the tree, the waves and even some of the grasses on that too perfect hill.
Personally that kind of fake photography leaves me cold, but that's just my opinion.

@ Abdul:

Interesting find. I looked at his FB page where he advertises his "Western Cubism" (sic). It quickly gets repetitive and completely lacks the raw power of the original cubists. They used commonplace, contemporary objects or models for a reason, not glorified Indians, cowhands or emblematic wild animals from the past.

OK so it's not Great Art, but he could make a good living grinding them out for hotels and convention centers.

Looks like "dazzle" ship camo for fish.
... The stars were suns, but so far away they were just little points of light ... The scale of the universe suddenly opened up to me. It was a kind of religious experience. There was a magnificence to it, a grandeur, a scale which has never left me. Never ever left me.

The flash of light you saw in the sky was not a UFO. Swamp gas from a weather balloon was trapped in a thermal pocket and reflected the light from Venus.
