The joy of a small painting!
There’s a pleasure to be had in a small precious painting, one you can pick up in your hand, place on a shelf, move around easily.
It’s an ideal way to start collecting art without going down the print route, and a little painting makes an extra special gift. (In fact I could go on forever about the delights of a mini work of art!)
I often paint small because the initial idea to finished picture will be swift, it helps me work out ideas in my head. Of course a lot of these little experiments don’t make it and end up wiped or scraped away.
Here you see some of the ones that survived!
