Re: Monthly MINIATURE Project -- March, 2012

Wow your fox looks amazing!

Makes me shy about posting mine, since I am not at that level! I tried the the green beans and tomatoes – photo by BettyBoop. ATC size markers and inks.

Re: Monthly MINIATURE Project -- March, 2012

Lovely work in this thread. I tried the yellow fields by madmum for my second ever gouache piece. 4"x6" on 140 lb wc paper.

Re: Monthly MINIATURE Project -- March, 2012

Trying to practice painting miniatures. This one is 2 1/2" x 3 1/2".


Reference courtesy of madmum

This is my first attempt at a miniature painting. It looks yellower than it is IRL and my camera seems to be flattening out the yellow passages.

Kate - very nice bird!

Ros - I love the juicy colors on the tomatoes and peas.

SunFace - the adenium is lovely and so are the tomatoes and peas.

Lucylove - I really adore how that fox turned out. Gorgeous.

Colorfulcritters - great gouache landscape. I wish mine had more variation like yours!

Rain24, I really like your painting as it is more realistic than mine. I especially like your trees.

Re: Monthly MINIATURE Project -- March, 2012

Here is my take on green beans and tomatoes by BettyBoop22.
I thought of experimenting on this papaer with writing on bg ,
thanks again Val for great photos.
Thankyou for looking and C&C welcome.

Well done Marriam. Your drawing is great and the newspaper print is quite a novel idea.

I know I am late, but better late than never. I am inspired by the previous works to get to work and do something myself. You guys are great!

Eileen, your Tomatoes and Beans is a beautiful drawing, and the colour is wonderful, especially on the Tomatoes. Thankyou so much for posting.

Val.

Re: Monthly MINIATURE Project -- March, 2012

Lola and Rain did such beautiful landscapes. It is very tempting to try, but April's challenge awaits. I just finished Dave Slaughters little bird in watercolour on a 3.5x2.5 card.
