This great card comes from the lovely Ellu in Italy, telling me she’s finally graduated! Congratulations Ellu! Here you can see one of Leonardo Da Vinci’s perspective studies before he painted Adoration of the Magi. This was so that his final painting could be completed to perfection without looking staged. Well, even the most famous of artists have to practice!
