painting with fingers

when i was getting some files ready to be sent to a printer for test prints, i cropped a photo of my painting and ended up really liking it that way.




i painted it with my fingers. dipping my fingers in paint is so much more fun than using brushes. i think one of the main reasons for disliking brushes at some point was that i didn't have any good ones. now i have some really nice paint brushes that i enjoy using very much. but still, using the fingers instead is so much more "hands on" - literally. sure, it's very messy and it's far less predictable. but this unpredictability is part of the experience.

if you haven't tried it before you should!
i'd love to hear about how you liked it...
