Miniature Paintings

Hello, everyone!

There is a long, rich history in the art of Miniature painting. While studying portraiture at The School of Visual Arts, I experienced firsthand how challenging and rewarding it is to work on such a small scale.

I am pleased to finally unveil two of the Miniature Paintings from that class. Each measures only 2 inches by 2 inches, yet when you zoom into it, the surface becomes lively with both the brushwork and sculptural quality of the paint. This was an amazing experience for me, and an exercise I would highly recommend.
