Master Facts: Learning from Leonardo Da Vinci
Head of an Apostle in Red Chalk on a prepared Ground – Leonardo da Vinci
Leonardo da Vinci often used natural Red Chalk as a drawing medium. The particular chalk used could be quarried directly from the earth, shaped into short sticks and immediately used without the addition of binders or any other processing. Industrial, economic and geological changes have led to this material being lost to a whole host of modern alternatives.
