Faces and Shadows


Started working on a 2" x 3" painting for the Miniature Show in June. Will glaze it with some colour once the Grisaille is dry.

 I love it when the sun shines through the window and shadows dance across the walls.


How's this though, shadow art created from junk, to see more click on the link.

So you paint in oils?
Anyway, it's lovely as always...you have such a sweet but painterly hand.
But so TINY..it's funny you posted this b/cause I'd just run across this in last Friday's NYT and was all agaga. And that's twice as big as yours! (How many hairs in your brushes? :-)

thanks Debrina :)

Hiay T, oh yes, I LOVE oils, that is my primary medium.I really enjoyed the link, thanks for sharing. I use very very small brushes, but the difficulty is finding blending brushes that small.
