What do you mean by "paint" the light on her?
Focus camera & trip the shutter, turn on the flashlight & use it to cover your subject with light using a back & forth waving motion. The subject has to remain totally still & not look like a deer caught in the headlights!

Very interesting technique, did it take you long to learn this to not make them too bright or dark?

Actually, I was just trying it out to see if it would work & it worked the first time (lucky me). I've done it since & use the same shutter speed & same flashlight so I haven't really had any problems. I do have a Pelican Super Sabrelight that I'm pretty sure would require a different approach.
