new work - a new series of miniature portraits
a miniature portrait - gouache on my own handmade 'canvas' which is mount board with linen and gesso. This work measures 55mm x 43mm
And so yes - I have started to work on a new series of tiny portraits - these new works are miniature in size, smaller than previous..... I am making more detailed portraits, placing figures within landscapes and interiors. I enjoyed working on my first series of tiny portraits but have felt the desire to develop my skill further, creating yet more intricate scenes - not for the sake of detail but to offer the viewer a rich story. Romantic, nostalgic, inspired by historical painting but really their own little worlds, these paintings are time consuming to make - but I hope I shall be able to continue making them for a while.
and another of a similar size - some will be more naive in style than others and each will be individually priced as I will be playing about with a variety of scales/sizes
I am also making new tiny landscapes.
Meanwhile, from a somewhat different department.... I have a couple of new still life works and here is one:
still life with footed jug - acrylics on Fabriano paper
These works and more in my shop tomorrow at 2pm UK time. Thank you.
