"Leda and the Swan"

I was inspired by two long held traditions of fine art. The first being the tradition of the narrative using mythology. Secondly, the nude.
My design strategy was to create a playful interpretation of the Greek Myth, "Leda and the Swan"
My work process was pretty straight forward, through my imagination I created a scenario of Leda bathing at the pool where Zeus comes to her disguised as a swan.
