With the goal of becoming an artist, Leonardo started off life on the right foot. He had the opportunity to experiment with observation and technique from an early age, and showed remarkable talent as a child. His early apprenticeships served to further his ultimate goal, and he was lucky to be apprenticed to a master of great skill. Once he finished his apprenticeship and joined a painting guild, Leonardo began to develop his own style and methods which would lead to his astonishing career.
