Today’s Free eBook of the Day is The Notebooks of Leonardo Da Vinci by Leonardo da Vinci.

In his journals the master artist talks about his painting technique and perspective. Here is an excerpt: “The first thing in painting is that the objects it represents should appear in relief, and that the grounds surrounding them at different distances shall appear within the vertical plane of the foreground of the picture by means of the 3 branches of Perspective, which are: the diminution in the distinctness of the forms of the objects, the diminution in their magnitude; and the diminution in their colour.”
