Abstract Elementals

Post by Lynnie on Mon May 09, 2011 2:34 pm

My friend has asked me to paint her belly every other week or so throughout her pregnancy. She's 3 months, so the belly is a very different texture still than what I've decorated (with glitter or henna) in the past.

She's a very earthy, pagan mama so I did the elementals. I had planned for about 3 hours so I could get really detail but I ended up with only about an hour. Don't judge. Wink

At the end of it, she was over the moon and that's what matters.

Shannon, yes! Smile

I admit, wind was the hardest to figure out. The colors her faith has assigned to it are mostly yellows with pale blues. Not to mention painting wind itself without a reference point (a tree blowing, for example) was challenging.

Great idea and I'm a bit jealous you'll have such a good opportunity for belly painting for months!
