Verocchio, a sculptor, painter, and goldsmith, was a remarkable craftsman. He had great concern for the quality of execution in expressing the vitality of the human figure. These elements were important in the formation of Leonardo's artistic style. It should be noted that much in Leonardo's approach to art originated from using tradition, rather than rebelling against it.
Leonardo was a gifted painter. His training and apprenticeship with verocchio helped him greatly. He learned how to blend colors and how to apply shadows to create a three dimensional effect that made the painting seem to come to life.
Some of these paintings include : The last supper, Mona Lisa, adoration of the magi, virgin on the rocks.
