Brooklyn-based painter Iris Scott is the only fine-art oil finger painter working today. She earned a BFA in Painting and a MA in Teaching, and studied painting in Florence.

Currently, her finger-painting originals hang in Philadelphia, Seattle, San Diego, and Jackson Hole. Collectors from around the world buy her originals, and there are daily orders for her prints. Scott's most iconic painting, Shakin' Off the Blues, has gone viral several times, including on Reddit, where it captured nearly 2 million hits and counting.Iris is spearheading a revolution with this timelessly accessible technique that leaves the brushes behind in order to let grown-ups reconnect with their inner child. Her students walk away from her finger-painting courses with something classically beautiful to hang on their walls.

I thought that it was impossible to make "serious work" without brushes, but after completing the first two lessons in this book I am never looking back. I have toyed around with painting for years and spent so much money on brushes and cleaners and solvents. I always felt like if I just had one more brush or a better easel, I could really start.All you need for the weekend workshop is a canvas, paints, and some latex gloves! it is so liberating to have such a simple set of tools to really work with. There is absolutely no excuse to not produce a really quality piece of art-- all the steps are well-explained in a super confidence boosting way. Before this book I had never finished a single painting, and, trust me, if I can do it anybody can. The author has a really reassuring writing style. I agree with the book's recommendation that you should invest in good paint. The paint practically does half the work and all of the other tools are so inexpensive you will save plenty of money to be able to get the good stuff. If you think you can't paint, or keep putting it off all the time, this book is a guarantee that you will have an amazing painting right away!
