Face Painting

It is the school holidays in New Zealand right now and for 2 weeks at our local Shopping Mall there have been face painters painting up a storm on the children’s’ faces. . .

What a wonderful gift these painters have. . .

There were so many differently decorated faces in the mall. The artwork was amazing and the children looked so good that I’m sure many of the adults would have liked to have had their faces painted too!

The artists use a special water-based cosmetic "paints" for the face painting.

This Tiger cub is Caleb, nearly 5 years old. He was absolutely thrilled with his Tiger-look. We all were.

BTW – the face painting was done for no charge – the Mall hired the artists to come along. They were so popular the children were given numbers when they arrived at the stall.

Hi Janice...
Nice artwork...
Beautiful shot with nice colors...
Have a nice weekend...

Hi Janice,

Such a great tiger cub Caleb makes. His smile is just like my grandson's Micah.
He sure seems to enjoy being a tiger and you will all have told him how great he looks. How sad he must have felt when the paint had to be washed of before going to sleep.
Well this excellent portrait will remind him forever.

ciao janice..scatto molto simpatico..ottimo lavoro..bello il soggetto..ottimo pov..buoni i dettagli

You got me! HAHA! Can't resist a kid with a painted face! Shelby LOVED doing this and we spent lots of time painting her, the dog, the cat! HAHA! Wonderful, I might would have used a BIT more contrast and saturation, but this is super nice, tight crop! Very fun!

beautiful work of art you captured here, Janice. very nice colours; it's so vivid.

a charming 'tiger cub' you have here....:)

Sure, these artists have a talent Janice, but so do you... for capturing nice colours with good sharpness, but also for capturing that look on Caleb's face. Children's joys always work in a photo, but it's not always easy to capture it.
Well done, TFS

Muy atractiva imagen con fenomenales coloras y expresividad..

And I guess their families were thrilled, too, Janice. This is one sweet, happy tiger cub and well portrayed, too: wonderful close-up and good angle. Caleb is lucky to have a grandma with a good eye and camera. Thank you for sharing and cheers, Cordelia :))

very nice boy's face

Excellent capture. Very well framed and you have caught his expression well, even through all that amazing artwork!
