A moment's inspiration lead to this departure from my normal metier. The concept of a statue painting itself to life, loosely inspired by the story of Pygmalion from Greek mythology. A quick casting call for likely model candidates and a suitable talented body painter lead to a shoot and hey presto...
Jillian Elizabeth came forward as body painter for this shoot and the beautiful Aimee Louise Owens was our "statue". We took advantage of the facilities at Dreghorn Photography's studio.
It was a cold day and despite the studio heater's best efforts Aimee had to put on a brave face and model through the goosebumps. Both she and Jillian were a pleasure to work with on the day and Stuart was his usual gracious host, keeping me entertained as we waited between stages of the body painting.

There was even time for tea and biscuits here and there.
And the end of the story and the beginning of the shoot. The statue is human (mostly)
