Best job in Brazil? Painting nude Carnival models


Betto Almeida is the Mr Lucky of Rio's Carnival.

The 36-year-old artist awakes at 8 am. Has a little breakfast. Survives a commute through the city's tough traffic. Arrives at the office by 11.

Then he spends hours painting the bodies of gorgeous women - and earning as much as $US2,000 ($A3,076) a day.

"You wouldn't believe how many applications I get for an assistant," Almeida deadpanned, never taking his eyes from his work as he brushed bright orange paint on the stomach of a model in his glass-enclosed studio under the grandstands at the Sambadrome, where Rio's Carnival parades ended.

"But it's hard work, man. I take my job seriously."
