I might get to paint my first belly

Post by Cherry on Mon Aug 22, 2011 5:58 am

Ok, so i'm so excited and terrified at the same time Smile A local photographer just contacted me to see about painting a mum-to-be for a photoshoot. I'd love the chance and opportunity to do it, but so far the only belly i've painted is my own! Any tips for a first-timer? I've read that it's better to have mum standing at the beginning to map out the design? And do i need to use anything to seal the paint in the end? aarrggghhhh, i just love this crazy job! Very Happy

I never used anything to seal it..maybe just a little hairspray would do, but spray it from a not too close distance...

indeed sketch your design when standing up and painting in a comfortable position for the mom..just let her walk in between if she likes...

and enjoy it! it's a beautiful round canvas to work on and it's a happy occasion!

Thanks Michelle Smile The photographer actually called me back today wanting to book me on a permanent basis. I'm thinking cool, but let me paint 1 belly for you first before deciding to hire me!

you'll do just fine!! the tiger in your avatar looks great too!

do you know what she would like? then you could make a drawing before you do the actual bellypainting..

Thanks, i'm really excited to tell you the truth. I just need to get my confidence and competencies back up to where they used to be (took a long break and i'm a bit out of practice with my fpainting skills). Good idea about doing a rough sketch beforehand. I'm not sure what she wants yet. I'm hoping it's something like butterflies and flowers and nature-related sort of things....and not a life portrait of a baby taken off her ultrasound pics or something like that Shocked That would definitely be a first for me!
