Click here to purchase: "Nessie" $21
I've titled this "Nessie" and it measures 1 3/4 x 2 1/2". It took longer than the one I did yesterday and it's a fraction of the size. If you think you're going to cut corners by making a mini painting, and you're used to painting larger paintings, think again.
Since I have never been able to work small I decided that my first challenge would be to work in miniature. I have discovered that it isn't a style I like very much. I created a landscape, which turned into a seascape, which turned into a mudscape. I gave up, but thanks to my friend Vicky Knowles, from the World of Wibble, I decided to change it. I won't post the first attempt because it's too embarrassing - it looks like I did it blindfolded.
The second attempt worked, although it's not really a subject I would normally pick for myself. I jokingly said maybe adding Nessie, the Loch Ness monster, would improve it, and she did. It's not a masterpiece but it isn't in the trash either, which is where it was headed. What an accomplishment! I went out of my comfort zone twice. I painted a miniature painting AND I chose a subject that I never would have chosen otherwise.
