Thanks to Peninsula Gallery, some of my miniature paintings will now be available with small frames. These frames fit comfortably in the palm of one hand and measure only a few inches in size. This waterfall scene is one that I painted from a trip to the Scottish highlands a few years ago, and is available at the gallery. The featured image for this post is a scene from Ladysmith, which I was working on during the demo last weekend, and will be sending to Peninsula Gallery soon!
There are new pages, listed on the left side menu, where you can view a collection of images showing the step-by-step process I’ve used in different paintings. Both of the current examples are painted in acrylic on paper board. I’ll try to get new painting progressions posted before too long.
For artists who paint realism already, miniature painting might just be one small scale away from what they already know and love. This is an introduction I am always pleased to make: Fellow detail lover… meet your new passion! Or at least give it a try.
Through a variety of classes and workshops, I have been teaching the art of painting-in-miniature for over 10 years, working with all levels of experience. If you, or your art group, would like to learn more about this type of painting, please contact me to set up a workshop in your area.
We had a great time on Saturday, at Peninsula Gallery in lovely Sidney BC. A big thank you to everyone who came out to say hello, and to the friendly and helpful staff who made the event a success! Watching me paint in miniature is akin to watching moss grow on a rock, but seeing new faces and enjoying good conversations made the experience a memorable one.
Packing up and getting ready for tomorrow’s demo at Peninsula Gallery in Sidney! If you’d like to try your hand at miniature painting or you’d just like to chat with me, I’ll be the one with the tiny brushes…
Travelling along the coast of the Olympic Peninsula afforded many beautiful beach moments, and this miniature painting was the result of one such moment, which I enjoyed with my daughters.
This miniature painting was inspired by a trip to the west coast near Tofino, last autumn. Standing on the rocks and enjoying the lush greens of the coast, I couldn’t help but marvel at the vast array of greens found in just this one beautiful spot on the beach.
