Finger Painting, Urban Sketching

Last week, I got down to sketching and found I had no paintbrush with me. But I wasn’t going to miss the opportunity to sketch, so finger painting it was. It turned out to be great fun, I was Ed Emberley for the day 馃檪 I found that finger painting forced me to simplify, to not rely on mixing shades and working my washes into each other. It was all dip, dab and drag-finger-along-paper.

Here are some finger-painted urban sketches:, the first one at In-N-Out Burger

Finger Painting: In-n-Out

And this set of little studies at my son’s soccer practice:

Finger Painting: Soccer sketches

I noticed I wasn’t the only one having fun sketching like this. I think it amused a lot of people to see me messing around with my paints like a child 馃檪

More fingerpainted pieces here on my blog o en flickr.
