The day time demonstration sessions at the Kryolan booth at the Face and Body Art International Convention were only two hours long, so when a young man volunteered to have his torso painted I decided to do something using their UV Aquacolors, which would allow me to get a maximum effect in a minimum of painting time. Kryolan’s UV dayglos pop so bright under backlight that you can get a very fun painting without a lot of finesse.
I painted this in about 90 minutes, took some photos under regular light and then headed for the backlight room to photograph the UV effect. When I was processing the images on the computer I saw that with a little photoshop manipulation it also works playfully in a horizontal format.
