Leonardo Drawings

Some of Leonardo drawings show the "sfumato" technique to render realistic effects. It is in this period that Giotto's realism lessons ( and also Cavallini's, , Duccio's and Masaccio's ) are enhanced to even more spectacular levels.

The Chiaroscuro is a technique which manipulates the shades. It was known in the ancient Greece (Apollodoro, Polignoto of Thasos).

Leonardo modified it in a "sfumato" technique which renders the passing from light to dark softer.
