I've been busy this week putting all my ducks in a row, so to speak, before gearing up for the final art work for my book, so I almost didn't post (better late than never). That being said, I dredged up an old drawing for this week's Illustration Friday topic, "Teacher." It's a pretty potent prompt, to say the least. One thinks of a beloved school teacher or family member, for sure. But I kept thinking about one of my ultimate "educators," Leonardo DaVinci. This is a little "out take" from one of his amazing paintings, "The Virgin of the Rocks" (London version) that I did years ago as an exercise. I had all but forgotten about it until I started thinking about teachers.
Leonardo was one of my best :)
