At the request of several of my artistic colleagues, I've decided to post my working notes for the summer body painting series here as we proceed through the series. With that in mind, I'll update the page each time I add new notes to it. Please feel free to comment or place questions at the bottom of the page.
For those who have not either participated or seen photos of previous sessions, I'll give you a bit of background.
When a body painter works, their focus is traditionally only on the painting in front of them. Some painters create abstract body art, others create elaborate creatures, or designs upon the human form.
For me the process is a lot more complex. The painting of the body is only one step in a long process.
I can break down that process into four stages.
