Week 15- Activity: Finger Painting

Finger painting isn’t a difficult activity. It is fun, though generally messy when cleaning up. From my art bucket, I was given red, green, and white paint. I decided on doing a December theme, settling for the Poinsettia flowers. There were supposed to be more than five petals, but I felt that I wouldn’t distinguish each petal from the rest even after letting the first few petals rest. I felt as if it brought out my child-like side, the feeling of wanting to make a mess. Though there was not a lot of creativity  involved in my drawing, I didn’t know what else to draw when the paint couldn’t really be mixed. There was also a limited supply because I had to share the paint with my partner. I know that some individuals didn’t enjoy the feeling of the paint on their fingers, especially when one has long

Though there was not a lot of creativity  involved in my art, I didn’t know what else to do when the paint couldn’t really be mixed. There was also a limited supply of paint because I had to share the small pots with my partner. I know that some individuals didn’t enjoy the feeling of the paint on their fingers, especially when one has long nails. I found that the red paint I used left a stain on my fingerpads. In the end, finger painting is somewhat hard because I am more used to drawing or painting with a utensil. It was awkward at first because I didn’t get the flow of things and felt unsatisfied with how each petal was turning out. I also honestly did not predict how thick my lines would be or how big each petal would be. If I were to redo this project, I would find more time to find something else I could draw now that I have the general sense of how each line would be.
