The last supper
After painting a large Meal of Friends twice, the most mythical dinner almost automatically arises: the last supper. And then you cannot ignore Leonardo da Vinci’s version, so I used that as a base for the composition.
Judas has done what was meant to be, and here’s the thing, starting with the sacred chair, and thanks to the halo glow, the chairs cast their dramatic shadows forward. I gratefully exploit that glow in The last supper II, where it helps the viewer to identify the different characters.
