Hello there,

When I saw this months challenge, I thought that it was a great idea, especially as I had been thinking about doing a painting of a nude for a while and had just come up with an idea that involved flicking paint at a canvas which it seemed sensible to do outside!

So I painted a canvas with a skin colour:

Waited for it to dry, made up a template which I temporarily glued onto the dry canvas:

And then flicked lots of paint at it! (please excuse the ridiculous outfit!)

Which produced this final result:

Now all I need to do is varnish it and then it can go up on the wall.
