  1. AutumnTrail.JPG

    From the album Mini Paintings

    I painted this one from a Jigsaw Puzzle picture. I really liked the large tree trunk and wanted to try to paint it. Slowly moving away from tutorials and on to painting from pictures I find and like. Inspiration is everywhere.  
  2. Country Lane. Acrylic on paper

    From the album Mini Paintings

    New mini painting. I lost my painting mojo for part of this year but it back now.    
  3. Dawn in the Fairy Forest.JPG

    From the album Mini Paintings

    A new painting. I tried this one on watercolour paper, which I like the texture of, but it's no fun to paint acrylics on.. lol.. Maybe I just have to get used to it.  In this picture the morning rays through the trees look a little over done. In RL they are much more subtle.. I wonder why the camera does that.
  4. Barn Paintings.JPG

    From the album Mini Paintings

    I tried a couple of smaller barn paintings.. I seem to have a thing for red barns.. lol I'm trying to improve my perspective.. It's quite hard to get it right.. more work to do.   Oh and I need to find a suitable cloud brush for mini work.. nothing I have at the moment works very well.. May have to cut down something.  I also need to take a trip to the art store for paint.. one of the biggest challenges so far has been not having or being able to mix the right colour.
  5. From the album Mini Paintings

    I was fascinated by @Deb's mini paintings so decided to give it a go following her suggestion to follow an online tutorial by "Painting with Jane". I chose her winter cabin painting to do first. This is the link to her tutorial, where you can see her original. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fikeC_Pynhg&index=57&list=PLGi-TA24mm8S5va5bxNoG6zmLVJ6y-V5u OMG, can I just say, so fun and so addictive. I have zero painting skill and I think this came out pretty good...  Seriously, anyone could do this.
  6. Winter Cardinal.JPG

    From the album Mini Paintings

    Decided to give a Cardinal a try... This one is an impressionistic miniature of one by "The Frugal Crafter" https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6qxByPINy3E Cant. stop. mini. painting!... Need to clean my house!
  7. Beach Fire.JPG

    From the album Mini Paintings

    Decided to stay away from barns and try something different.   Lesson learnt from this painting.. fire is hard to paint. 
  8. Miniature Picasso

    Hi everyone! I recently finished up this Picasso- A Dream for a commissioned work, and I'd like to show it! =) I have a question for fellow miniature artists- I seem to have trouble making sales in my store. I've had a couple commission requests, but I'd like sales in my store as well. Do you guys have more luck selling things on ebay than etsy? Or somewhere else? Are my prices too high/low? I feel like with the difficulty level of the paintings they're fair but perhaps I'm wrong? Any input is greatly appreciated! Thanks, Nika
  9. Hi everyone! I have an etsy store where I sell hand-painted miniatures of works by famous artists like Van Gogh, Monet, Picasso and others (as well as some original work). I also take requests for paintings if there's a specific one you'd like that's not in the store. All of the paintings are hand-painted by me one 2inx2in canvas, and are one of a kind. It would be great if you would check it out! https://www.etsy.com/shop/nikatimedesigns Thank you! Nika
