What kind of writing technique was used by Leonardo da Vinci?
Leonardo wrote in Italian using a special kind of shorthand that he invented himself. People who study his notebooks have long been puzzled by something else, however. He usually used "mirror writing", starting at the right side of the page and moving to the left. Only when he was writing something intended for other people did he write in the normal direction.

Leonardo Da Vinci used "mirror writing" --but that is only what we call it now. So, his private notes are read "backward" (right-to-left)---- but that is probably just the… natural way for a young left-handed person to write. Especially to keep his hand out of the ink! And especially if this writing was only notes to himself! Leonardo often wrote directions to himself as if he were another (3rd) person. While it was long thought that he wrote 'backwards' to disguise his experiments, that is no longer believed true. When he was making maps of construction diagrams for presentation to others, for instance, he lettered them left-to-right. Sometimes, he paid scribes to write letters for him --- again, left-to-right. His own left-to-right handwriting (which would be 'backwards' to him ) was shaky and hard to read (even for a Leo scholar) . Try it yourself-- its very hard. Leonardo also used his own symbols for a variety of often-used combinations of 2-3-4 letters-- sort of like making up a new letter for 2 letters you use a lot-- like â for "ste". He also often left-out articles (like "the", of", and "for"), but so do many Italian writers. So, it is not enough to simply read his Italian in a mirror--- one who wishes to read Leo's notebooks first-hand must know Leo's symbols, too!

Leonardo da Vinci did not write using a mirror. Leonardo was left-handed, so he wrote from right to left, which is called "mirror writing", meaning that other people needed …a mirror in order to read what Leonardo wrote. Leonardo da Vinci wrote most of his notebooks using "mirror writing".
It is oil paint on wood panel.
He wrote backwards so that it could only be viewed in a mirror.
Leonardo Da Vinci used thick paints and a thick, heavy paintbrush.
He used a technique known as atmospheric perspective. As objects recede into the background they become bluer and have less detail.
