Here are a few more little acrylic “fingerprinting” studies I did a few weeks ago. I made rules for myself: Imaginary portraits using only acrylic paint using only my index finger (including my fingernail, if needed).

I like working with limited supplies sometimes… I think I like the challenge! And “rules” really help me for some reason, too… here are some statements by creatives throughout history that I love:
“The more constraints one imposes, the more one frees oneself of the chains that shackle the spirit.” — Igor Stravinsky
” Limit gives form to the limitless.” — Pythagoras
“The fewer limitations the artist imposes on his work, the less chance he has for artistic success.” — Aleksandr Solzhenitssyn
“The problem about art is not finding more freedom, it’s about finding obstacles.” — Richard Rogers
“Without firm limits there is no play.” — Rem Koohaas
Have a wonderful day, everyone!
