I am soooooooooooooooooo glad to have a break from drawing Paris. I feel like I've been in heiress detox all day. I drank three cups of green tea, didn't read any blogs, and plugged my ears when I heard her name mentioned on CNN. As part of my recovery today, I thought it would be nice to create a pretty painting of a celebrity I like.
I am intrigued by the Barbados songstress Rihanna. She looks so perfect, like she was created in photoshop. I like her songs, I like her videos, and from interviews I've seen, I like her. I appreciate that somehow, miraculously, there can be a pop star whose exposed crotch I haven't seen, isn't in rehab, isn't getting in fights with other stars, and who isn't in prison. Amazing.
I did the above painting with watercolor, gouache, ink, and colored pencil on paper. Shades of pinks and purple in the background courtesy of photoshop. Thanks photoshop.
One wasn't enough. The next image is in honor of her chart topping single, Umbrella.
