Leonardo da Vinci The Head of Leda c.1505-8, black chalk, pen and ink, 7x53⁄4in (17.7x14.7cm)

A nationwide exhibition, Leonardo da Vinci: A Life in Drawing from the Royal Collection, will go on show in 12 simultaneous exhibitions in February to mark the 500th anniversary of the Renaissance master’s death. Each venue will include 12 drawings that reflect the full range of Leonardo’s work, including paintings, sculpture, architecture, music, anatomy, engineering, cartography, geology and botany, bringing his drawings to the widest ever UK audience.

The drawings have been kept together as a group since the artist’s death and provide an unparalleled insight into the way he worked and thought. Since so few of his paintings survive, and much of his life’s work – such as engineering projects, ground-breaking anatomical and botanical studies – was unrealised or destroyed, these drawings provide the only way we can access his great mind.

About The Artist

Take your drawing and painting to the next level with inspiration, guidance and advice from this month's top contributing artists and tutors. Cover artist, David Parfitt, shares how it's possible to work through a non-productive period to paint your best painting yet. Haidee-Jo Summers invites you to paint everyday, unarranged objects to discover more about design and composition. We also include demonstrations showing how to apply the one-stroke watercolour method, use a variety of techniques to enliven your watercolours, paint silver objects and reflections in acrylics, achieve the texture of rocky landscapes in pastels, use photographs as a memory aid, bring a portrait to life in oils, capture animals' expressions, and much more. Whatever your subject matter or preferred medium, there's something for everyone, and when you've created your best work, enter our 2019 open competition for a chance to see your work exhibited, published in The Artist, and win one of 40 prizes worth over £17,000!
