I was contacted by the model who wanted to do a shoot involving paint. She's had a rough year and was feeling stale and unmotivated, so she thought a creative project would help.
I knew I wanted to do more than just paint her different colors, or throw paint around since I've seen a lot of similar concepts already. After sketching out a few ideas and browsing the internet for inspiration I thought it'd be cool if she was wearing or undressing the paint.
The production was straight forward. I painted her legs completely and had her pose. Then I had her pour the paint from the bucket while standing on a ladder. The shots I got from that served as color and lighting references for when I would later paint in the "dress" in Photoshop.
