I started this piece with the background, which is my usual process. This time I was uncertain of the color I was going to get because I added different blues, red, yellow and white and just started mixing. I was more than pleased with the result. Even though all the colors come together to make one color, you can still feel and see each individual color throughout the background. This background made me so happy because I had never made this color before and it made me feel like I was in murky waters. I wanted to play on that feeling of blurred emotions or murky thoughts so I made the dull squares to emphasize that mood.
