It is his structural drawings and notebooks that personally capture my attention the most. Leonardo kept journals full of stunning small sketches and detailed drawings to record a wide range of imagery that inspired him throughout his travels and life. I love the atmospheric qualities in his work including the simplicity of monochrome drawings in contrast to the now aged papers and parchment. The textural scratchy pen and ink lines, varied quality of line and sketched style of Leonardo’s drawings make them distinctive and irreproducible in my eyes.
