On Saturday I was really lucky… Well, I could say that I had a honour of participating in a workshop of Mark Reid. It´s a charismatic man with a huge talent that´s why he is a body painter known in the whole world and a respected artist.
This time, as he was in a World Bodypainting Festival in Austria he also decided to visit Madrid because of a workshop organized by Esther Sagbal. It was an event that attracted people from different parts of Spain – from the Canary Islands, Majorca and Málaga to A Coruña and Barcelona. It was worth it!
We started with activities that increase the creativity and designs which can be used in many ways in our own paintings…
After that, everyone of us got an autograph… It was a design painted in our bodies (mostly on our faces) and it came out really gorgeous.

But the ending was even more interesting. Those who had time went to a park to see how Master was painting Esther´s back. It was supposed to be flamenco dancers and I have to say that the effect was spectacular!
