I have also been a fan of Leonardo DaVinci's notebook drawings for some time now.  He drew this piece using a fountain pen on paper. Because he did not paint these or use other media like metalpoint, the work is supported because it suggests the piece is supposed to be a "note" not a status piece.  Everyone takes notes in easily accessible media, like pen or pencil, and the pen was used because of its convenience and speed.  Many people felt DaVinci was in a rush writing the notations in the notebooks and he was trying to make his words keep up with his thoughts.  These are like blueprints for designs and not masterpieces- that is why they are in pen.  It adds to their credibility.
