In Leonardo’s home there are a lot of paintings. The paintings are done by Leonardo’s father. The father Lorenzo is a technical draftsman who has always liked painting.
painting VS photo
Lorenzo paints strictly with oil because: oil painting is history. The oil painting is the technique mainly used by the great masters. The oil painting is the art of waiting. The oil painting technique requires long waiting times between one color application and the next. Waiting is deep thinking, refinement and correction that remain on the final work as a synthesis of the maturation of the work itself. This is contrasted by photography which is the representation of an instant expression of the final result of the research work, composition.
