Main Renaissance artists, the Ninja Turtles Dallas Plaiss

Renaissance artists were Humanists, people who were concerned with humans more than religion. They studied history, art, etc. and this was very different than what the people of the Renaissance studied so it had a big affect on them.

Artists were supported by patrons; the main contributors to the artists were the Medici family.

These medieval artists often used religious subjects to convey their ideas, whether their ideas be spiritual or not. The artists also use realism in their works.

Renaissance painters used perspective which showed three dimensions on flat surfaces with a vanishing point. You can see both in the painting, "The Last Supper" by Leonardo Da Vinci
These artists often used oil based paints or Fresco, a style of painting that involves painting on wet plaster. The Fresco technique was used in the painting "The Creation of Adam" by Michelangelo
