This has to be one of the smallest Oil paintings I've done...

Based on a watercolour painting by my art friend John Hoar.
His artwork is stunning, he certainly is a master when it comes to watercolour paintings.  Do take a look at his website, here.

So why would I even contemplate trying an Oil painting from a Watercolour, especially as watercolours have their own unique qualities.   The Challenge of it, I think that's why.
Obviously Oil paint will never be transparent, but in itself I felt I could convey
something that would speak for itself in oil.  

1. Vibrant colours
2. Make an emphasis on tones
3. Miniature painting - that alone is a challenge because of getting the detail in so small


Really pleased I gave this one my time, as I feel it works in its own way.


TITLE:  SWEET CONFINEMENT

measuring a mere: 3½" x 3½"  (8.89 x 8.89cm)







here's a short clip of my process, although I have to apologise for the shakiness, 
trying to video and paint at the same time is quite tricky!



 What do you think?

Wow that is small and very well done too.
How you manage to video and paint at the same time too is amazing!

Robin....aww Thanks. I won't pretend it was easy though, there were 'moments' with it. I pushed on through concentrating on tones and colours rather than what the subject actually is. When I stood back it had worked... ๐Ÿ’ƒ


Eileen....I had a giggle as I was painting and using my iPhone to video. It was like that thing of patting your head and rubbing your stomach!! ๐Ÿ˜‚
