This isn’t your ol’ grade school finger painting…

Iris Scott creates beautiful, vibrant paints in oils with only her fingers!

What really captures my interest in her painting technique – is the depth of colour and layers that go into her pieces.

Layers and layers of colour are applied in a “straight-out-of-the-tube” thickness. Some of the layers are almost completely over-painted – but it all adds to the luminosity and depth of her work.

I wonder how much paint she uses in a standard piece of work?

It reminds me of Van Gogh and how he would paint thickly when in coins, then add more and more thinner and medium to his paints to extend them during poor times.

I bet he would’ve loved these.

Enjoy Iris Scott’s beautiful work, an instructional video and an interview!
