A Touch of Paint – Fingerpaintings by Iris Scott


Article by

I love my dogs, reading books, and taking great pictures with my battered but still functional digital camera. Taking great pictures with a high end camera is almost too easy, producing fantastic images with an outdated one is an accomplishment by itself.

Iris Scott is a Seattle-based painter who has taken finger painting to new heights. Watching her at work is like watching a virtuoso piano player. She dips her gloved finger into high-grade oil paints and swirls them around the canvas to create beautiful portraits. She discovered her passion for finger-painting when, too lazy to leave the comforts of her cool room to clean her brushes, she started applying yellow paint with her fingers. Ten strokes later, she knew that she would spend the rest of her life finger painting with oils. She said: “I paint what I see. Finger paintings are hiding everywhere, sometimes I catch them when I’m walking down the sidewalk, or lounging in a living room.  I search for color relationships, and intriguing forms. I see the world through ‘finger painted’ colored glasses.”
