At the age 14, he began apprenticing with artist Verrocchio. By the age of 20, he was a master artist and had his own workshop.Da Vinci introduced new ideas in painting. For example: He used light and shadow contrast.

He had no formal education so he wrote with his left hand and also wrote from right to left and backwards. He spent most of his life in Florence and Milan. He spent his life painting in different cities, inventing and thinking. He didin't share his ideas very much.

Ludovico sforza of Milan and Francois 1 of France were his patrons.
