I was inspired to paint a portrait of Andrew McCutchen because I admire him as a player and a person. It looks like the Pirates may be trading him, but I wanted to honor his time as a Pirate... a period where he helped them break a 21 year playoff drought and become annual contenders for the last few seasons.
I originally started with a whitish-gray background to compliment the black of his uniform, but it was too dull for the look I'm going for, so I went with a grayish-purple to compliment the yellow in his uniform. The color purple indicates wisdom and imagination (imagine breaking a 21 season playoff drought!)... two traits McCutchen seems to possess.
