A few weeks ago I participated in painting for a promo video (above) for this years Body Canvas event which is to be held in September at the Flemington Racecourse. I had a great time, though sadly due to prior commitments I only had half an hour to paint my model and had to leave her half done. I'm really looking forward to the event latter this year.
