Finger Painting for Adults


Why let the kids have all the fun. This is a great way to loosen up with your art… for ALL levels of artists, ALL ages. It really shows if you can be free or find that hard and try to control. Also teaches about the different effects for example when varying the amount or thickness of paint, the degree of mixing, colour mixing on the artwork rather than on the palette, changes with change of viscosity of paint as it dries and a sensitivity to the physical pressure when applying the paint. Try it!!!! Can you resist the temptation to overmix and overblend…. and do you have an over-riding need to draw a subject?

    • I had about 4 or 5 emaiis from people overseas who liked this post Helen. I particularly like your moving hands…. a bit blurred ”making” bubbles. Thanks Mal for taking such a great photo.
