LEONARDO DA VINCI SKETCHBOOK


LEONARDO DA VINCI SKETCHBOOK

HELEN ROCHESTER AND ILEX    Book Number: 89117    Product format: Paperback

Mathematician, painter, architect, sculptor, designer, engineer, scientist, theorist and draughtsman, Leonardo Da Vinci (1452-1519) was the original Renaissance man. Much of his genius can be gleaned through his notebooks and drawings, and it is these which provide the basis for this guided sketchbook. It features everything from flying machine designs and dragons to in-depth studies of human anatomy. Drawings and diagrams are littered with annotations in his famed mirror writing. In nice big A4 8" x 11" pages, the right hand side is blank apart from quotes and captions and the left side reproduces original sketches, followed by further studies in close-up detail for artists of all levels to begin to copy. For example Proportions of the Face from 1490 is from a series of preparations for his Vitruvian Man. Use the blank page with a grid on the right hand side to make your copy. There is a Self Portrait, a Male Nude, Studies for the Head of Leda with her beautiful braided hair, Head of the Virgin with an elegant yet eerie face with no lines at all. 'Simplicity is the ultimate sophistication' said Leonardo. And with practice on your special sketch pad you too can learn the art of drawing with the master. Softback with useful elastic fastener, the book will lie flat for when copying with its special binding.
