Leonardo da Vinci was likely ambidextrous

I remember reading they thought that years ago. The article said the reason they knew he was born left handed is because he used his fingers a lot while painting thus leaving his fingerprints in the paint. It's one great way they have of authenticating his work, his own finger prints...which I thought was pretty cool.

I'm left handed, and an artist. I've tried writing, drawing and painting with both hands simultaneously. I was actually able to do it, as long as my motions mirrored each other, lol. Also, I've been a da Vinci fanboy ever since I first learned about him. A lot of my work is inspired by his anatomical sketchbook work.

I just remember in school, if the subject bored us, a few of us would write our notes backwards (mirror fashion). I am right handed and did this right handed - couldn�t do it left handed. 60 years on I can still write like this but have to think about it now - too many years of no practice!
