Hi there! In my spare time I have been creating several portrait miniatures.
Painting in miniature is a huge passion of mine and was my job for many years. I used to work for the J.A. Dedouch company based out of Oak Park IL as a miniature portrait artist. I created miniature art on porcelain.
Here is some of my recent work. The miniatures are made on goat parchment or on Arches hot pressed watercolor paper with either Gouache, Createx illustration colors or Doctor Martins spectralite paint. Each miniature takes about 4 hours to create from start to finish. I draw the outline in pencil and then proceed to block in colors. The colors used are mainly transparent pigments and each portrait has many layers of transparent pigment on them. The miniature ovals are 30x40mm in size.
I hope you enjoy looking at them as much as I enjoy creating them!
