  • Miniature Vermeer painting

    Hi all,
    have just finished my latest (very) miniature painting. This time, I've painted a copy of Vermeer's 'Girl with a pearl earring'.
    Size is 5.5mm x 6mm.
    Painted in Acrylic onto 300gsm Bristol board. I've photographed it with a 10p piece for scale.

    Regards, Stu.

    I am so impressed, how on earth do you paint something so small ? Your brushes must be teeny weeny. Amazing !

        Sometimes what we say is not what we mean & what we mean is not what we say - that's why I paint!

                  Thanks for the kind comments.
                  The scale is 1/70th and was painted using 0000 gauge brushes.
                  I don't sell my work at the moment but intend to set up a website in the near future. I'd like to do this as a profitable hobby.
                  I'm currently sourcing a manufacturer for frames and the next task on my list is to work out a way of drumming up interest / publicity.
                  Any ideas?
                  Regards,
                  Stu

                    Don't know how you would even learn to paint that small. You must have great patience.

                    Cheers Janice
