365 Day 286: Finger Nail Painting

by Levonthelights September. 11, 2010 3232 views

This is a painting I bought from an artist recently in Old Town San Diego. It's oil on glass and entirely done with fingers. Yes, even the fine details. The guy has a finger with a long nail he does all the detail with. I watched him do this one in front of me in about 5 minutes and had to buy it. It's a scene of La Jolla Beach. He does reproductions of original pictures, I'd like to take him a picture and have him paint it one of these days, it's a very unique art.

He's painting my picture right now. Gotta love the hair…

The palette…

The finished product. Hanging in my window so the sun can shine through it
