Claude is the first painting I've ever done on a blue background. I painted the entire canvas with a poppy marine blue. I let the color dictate what the palette became – only because a lot of the colors I thought would look good ended up looking sad and dull. This piece really took me on a color journey and I'm thrilled with the result!
