Art – Miniatures in Progress

The start of a new year also means the start of a new series. This year I have decided to explore a botanical theme in the miniatures, focusing initially on the forest floor.

The theme seems well suited to miniatures, as mushrooms and leaves demand our up close attention for viewing details as do small works of art.

I am continuing to work in pen, ink and brush on paper, yet loosening up the lines in the initial drawing stage. There has also been a small departure from patterning, which I may or may not stick with.

Art is always a process. It will take a few pieces and many hours to define how I proceed with this theme. You never quite know where a piece will take you.

Work in Progress – Miniature Art

Currently in progress are several pieces of miniature art. The pieces are acrylic ink on paper and reflect themes of the west coast of Canada.

The above artwork, which is shown much enlarged compared to the size of the art in real life,  measures 7 cm in diameter. Artwork that can literally fit into the palm of your hand.

Miniature art is interesting. It is artwork that must be viewed up close. Art than can fit into any home. And due to it’s size, art that is affordable to own (and collect!).
