“Naughty But Nice”
Portrait of US singer Katy Perry
Acrylic & newsprint on canvas
100 x 120 cm

I came across a photograph of “pop princess” Katy Perry and knew straight away that it would work really well with the newsprint medium, her pose was perfect! She is a colourful character and with the bright pink background kinda sums her up.
I added tonal shade washes to give her skin depth and fine flick brush work for the fur on her shoulder.
