Bodypainting: External and Internal Beauty



I did some bodypainting again today on my friend, Kay.

I'd had this vision as I was trying to go to sleep last week of her as Queen Boadiccea. The first image, "Celtic Queen" is the result. I'm sure that I could have gone really elaborate and spent hours on the painting, but she had limited time today.

The second painting is called "Tiger Inside". I tried to create the illusion that she was scratching her skin away to reveal a tiger persona inside.

Stay posted for more variations on these themes...I see a "Queen" series and an "Inner Beauty" series in the offing.

Recently, I've been talking with a local photographer and models about doing bodypainting sessions. I should have some really neat stuff come out of that soon!
