I am enjoying my study of the masters of the past. In January, one of our master artists of the Renaissance was Giovanni Bellini. I loved learning about his color palette. The auburn with the blue is something I definitely love to combine. While the original reference painting had a view of the sky in the background, I changed it to an interior view with a metallic frame. I think it gives it a bit of a dramatic flair.
