Leonardo DaVinci

We have been doing some life drawing in the classroom today – fully clothed! Leonardo DaVinci was one of the first artists to really understand and show the proportions of the human body – how big the head is, how long the arms are in relation to the rest of the body.

What interesting relationships are there between the sizes of different parts of the body?
