I recently had the pleasure of making another baby belly body painting. My dear pregnant friend is a little obsessed with turquoise and thus the belly is themed in that color. She chose a beautiful symbol of growth, a tree with strong roots and a wide crown. See the final picture here, following by the making of and some close-ups.
It all started with the turquoise foundation. If you look closely, you see a slight gradient into cyan at the top. (It was more visible in reality than on the pictures.)
Adding the roots:
Let the bigger branches grow:
Then filling the crown:

And a close-up of the leafs:
I thank my friend for a lovely weekend and wish the little one all the best for the future. May it grow as well as the tree.
