View Full Version : Miniature 12 Pittenweem Roofs

Twelfth in a series of miniature canvases (10x10cm). Pittenweem is a seaside village on the east coast of Scotland and is famous for its summer arts festival apart from being rather picturesque. Done using mostly W&N artist tubes. All C&Cs very welcome.

Walter. This is so so charming. I always look forward to opening your posts because I am fascinated at how you manage such detail in tiny paintings. Love this one.

Hi Chammi - many thanks for comments - re the detail, I think it is more suggested than actual - I use cheap chisel-shaped brushes from the local hardware store and do most of the paintings with about a 6mm brush which can be used "end-on" for fine detail like windows and chimneys.

Today I was down at the charity exhibition where these little canvases are for sale - we have sold 11 pieces, either little canvases or giclee prints. All artist's proceeds to the Smile Train charity - so good news! The exhibition has one more week to go, so hopefully a few more will sell.

How wonderful that so many have sold to support Smile Train. They have all been so colorful and charming! It's not easy painting so many visual elements in such a small space.

Hi folks, the exhibition at a local deli closed at the end of June with the sale of 10 miniature canvases or prints and 2 larger paintings. Overall, we made over 340 which will go to the Smile Train charity -- and we were invited back to do it all over again next year. All in all a good result.
