The first image in the tetraptych of screen prints I'm working on for 'I HEART SCOTLAND' is based on 'The Baptism of Christ' by Leonardo da Vinci and includes Clyde the Glasgow Commonwealth Games mascot in the place of Jesus.
I've been working through various compositions in my sketchbook and took a few photographs of a golf course in Fife to create the backdrop for the scene.
I'm attempting to combine the chiaroscuro used in much Renaissance painting with a more cartoony, garish colour scheme, combining an aesthetic of religious drama with grotesque caricature.
