Work in Progress: A Portrait of LeonardoOil on Linen Panel (crop) - Part II
Commissioned by a client in Florence, this is actually the second go I’m having at this particular portrait. After an irreversible mistake I made in the original painting that made the surface quite unstable, I had no choice but to start over on a new panel.
This is the underpainting, almost done. Colour glazes to follow.

Work in Progress: A Portrait of Leonardo
Oil on Linen Panel

A couple of months ago, I was commissioned by a client in Florence to paint an oil portrait of ‘a young Leonardo da Vinci’, and I thought it’d be nice to show a few progress steps of the work done so far… :)

As with my other (digital) paintings of him, this is based on various 15th century depictions we have of Leonardo that have been generally accepted by historians.

Leonardo Portrait(Reconstruction - sketch)

I was commissioned to do a classical oil portrait of ‘the young Leonardo’, and this is the first general idea for it. It was approved by the client, which means I can now continue adding a few more compositional details and refine everything before transferring it to canvas.

[ This sketch did not make it to canvas in the end, as it was replaced by a simpler, more traditional portrait pose ]

LEONARDO RING
Handmade Fine Silver ring with a dark golden Patina and Leonardo’s handwriting - ’amantissimo’- carved into the band. While that is the male form, the female ‘amantissima’ is of course also possible, taken from a different notebook entry.Want? - You can get this made to measure, and it doesn’t cost that much, either. :)

LEONARDO RINGS

Something a little different, made with love:
Handmade Fine Silver rings with raw Diamonds and Leonardo’s handwriting - anchora speroand dimmi- carved into the band.

Want? - You can actually get these made to measure with a variety of stone choices, and they don’t cost the world, either. :)
