My favorite artist is Craig Tracy and he practices his art in New Orleans, Louisiana.
The art on this page should have given it away. I should have known since I was attracted to Max factor makeup, used in the movie industry to correct facial colors and provide new dimension to faces for the film industry.
makeup, as it is called in the movie industry,
is water-soluble, skin friendly and is meant
for temporary use.
This is unlike tattoo ink, which is embedded in the body and remains for a lifetime. This art form which consists of using skin friendly colors applied directly to the body of a human being must be applied in one day, preserved for a lifetime by photography, and then destroyed before the model goes to sleep. For this, photography was also a keen interest of mine.
first airbrush art and photography began more
than 60 years ago. I painted people, but not
like Craig does. In my estimation Craig Tracy
is the foremost,imaginative artist of the 21st Century. I
just love what he does!
painting people is far superior than painting
them on canvas or photographing them. He
really paints people!
page is a link to his site, where he shows you
how he does it. He is a living and breathing
artist and you may actually see him on the
streets of New Orleans painting people
at Mardi Gras time. Click on any picture for a real treat. This
web site is a convenience
index, if you have more than
just a smartphone or tablet you may go to
