Inspired by my earlier paintings of Natalie, "That Girl with the Purple Hair" was done in a graphic design style to much like many of the famous artists from the pop culture era.
I wanted to try a different style based off of the work of Patrick Nagel. I did this because I really like the comic book feel with the thick outlines and overall stylization of the work. I also really enjoyed leaving the skin stark white but coloring the hair vibrantly. I created the work using acrylic paint because I knew it would dry faster and that, for this style, I wouldn’t need to spend time blending the different tones of paint together.
