Renaissance Glog

Leonardo da Vinci was probably the most important artist during the Renaissance. Not only was he an artist, but he was a scientist and an inventor as well. He study anatomy in science by disecting horses and humans. He also drew designs for an invention called the "flying machine". He is most famous for the painting Mona Lisa. One technique that artists used was called linear perspective. It used horizon line, vanishing point, and orthogonal lines. Horizon line is about at eye level of the viewer and is where the sky appears to meet the ground. Vanishing point should be located around the center of the horizon. Orthogonal lines are "visual rays" helping the viewer's eye connect points around the edges of the canvas too the vanishing point.
