Leonardo da Vinci, one of the most famous artists in the world, lived and created art during the Renaissance in Europe. While this Italian painter is well known for his painting, he created many wonderful drawings. Leonardo used sfumato chiaroscuro, which was a shading technique that was popularized by his teacher, Andrea del Verrocchio. Leonardo also used “moti mentali” because he liked to illustrate human expressions and emotions.
