The Renaissance was a time where the classical themes of Ancient Greece and Rome were revived and improved upon from the 14th-17th centuries. In addition to reviving classical techniques, artists and sculptors built on them and developed several techniques of their own including perspective painting, individualism, secularism, and many more such as the fresco, a mixture called tempura, and countless others.

Annunciation, painted by Leonardo da Vinci around 1472, is a secular piece which uses dull colors and perspective. The painting depicts the angle Gabriel speaking to Jesus' mother, Mary.
Baptism of Christ, painted between 1470-1475 by Leonardo da Vinci and Verrocchio, also uses a great deal of perspective and dull colors. It depicts the baptism of Jesus by John the Baptist with angles in the lower corner.
This portrait of Ginevra de' Benci uses shading in order to create a 3D image. It depicts a woman, possibly in her late-30's, sitting outside on a sunny day near the waterfront.
The Alba Madonna, painted around 1510 by Raphael, depicts what seems to be a mother holding a cross along side her two children. The painting utilizes perspective painting and uses bright colors.
The Miraculous Draft of Fishes, painted c. 1516 by Raphael, depicts Jesus and some of apostles catching a great bounty of fish. In this piece you can see other fishermen in the background and birds in the foreground.
The Portrait of the Young Cardinal Ippolito I d'Este, painted between 1503-1505 by Raphael, utilizes the then-new technique of using oil-based paints during the Renaissance. It also uses perspective painting.
