Brooklyn artist uses fingers to create beautiful surreal oil paintings

Forget brushes and palette knives and start painting with your fingers. Your artwork will instantly take on a unique look reminiscent of Iris Scott’s beautiful paintings.

The Brooklyn-based painter uses her fingers to create vibrant, color-saturated scenes on canvases with thick oil paint. This technique achieves surreal looks found in dreamy urban cityscapes, and rainy roads packed with traffic. Scott describes the freedom of using her fingers instead of brushes saying, “There’s nothing between me and the paint, I feel all the tiny nuances. I can manipulate thick paint with my fingers in ways brushes never could.”
