In my second year of this course we had the opportunity to have specialist body painting lesson from Julia Francis. She is an established Make-up Artist from Brighton, and also specialises in body painting, practically pregnant women. Her work is amazing so to get the opportunity to be taught her techniques was such a great experience. We did two body paints after the introduction lessons, the first she gave us the subject of seasons, i chose autumn and printed leaves of my model. Unfortunately i never got any of these images back so can't show them. The second was animals. I chose leopard as it has a good pattern and gave me lots of detail to re-create. I was lucky enough to have a friend who didn't mind modeling for this as the one one of the biggest problems we had. Most people were too shy!
