Art In Wax : Encaustic Art By Hazel Rayfield

Celebrating 10 years :: Posted by: Hazel on March 24th, 2021

Celebrating 10 Years of Art In Wax

Thank You …… wow 10 years.

I have been painting in a Encaustic for 10 years, I had my first encaustic kit and paint at Easter in 2011, a gift from my husband Adrian. You can read more about my history on my website artist profile page .

I want to say a big thank you …..

Thank you everyone, my collectors and friends, who have support and encouraged me today and in the past 10 years of Art In Wax, and especially Adrian …… I couldn’t do it without you.

Many of you have inspired and challenged me with your commission requests.

Every reviews and comment is appreciated and it is such a joy when you show me your wonderful dollhouse creations with my art on display.

Selling a piece of art is always exciting and never taken for granted, painting in Encaustic is my passion and never more so than now in my 10th year.

Thank You 

Hazel x

Dollhouse 18th Century Portrait Paintings :: Posted by: Hazel on March 23rd, 2021

New Miniature Dolls House Paintings

A new style of “Lady” Portrait Paintings

These new paintings have lots of detail, I had fun painting these Lady’s with their outrageously decadent hats and dresses. A style that may have been from the French court 18th Century era.
Portrait painting

Named by Me …… mostly

They all have names, as do all my Lady Paintings…… Lady Pauline and Lady Octavia have masks as they attend The Masquerade Ball……

Lady Josephine is the unframed painting shown below and is 2 1/4 by 3 inches approximately and Lady Jacqueline in the wooden frame is wearing rather a lot of rouge !!!

All these paintings are painted using hot molten encaustic coloured wax, on specialist black gloss card.

They are shipping worldwide

These paintings are now sold, they are in homes in the U.K. (Manchester and Scotland) others are going to the Bahrain, Maryland USA and Spain.

Lady Caroline and Lady Marie France are the latest painting a commission by Lovely lady collector of mine…

The Go West Dollhouse Art Exhibition :: Posted by: Hazel on March 5th, 2021

Miniature Dolls House Art Exhibition

The Go West Exhibit

I was recently asked if I could paint a wagon and horse, like in the America Wild West …….. well one thing led to another and now a new exhibition is on at The Gallery.

My 1:12th scale Art Gallery is my folly, I love painting new collections to
have on display. This new collection has gone on display this week and was great fun to paint.
Western art exhibition

Wagon – the family are traveling to their new homestead out west.
Gold effect frame 2 1/2 x 3 inches

Prairie Barn – an old wagon in the grass is in the foreground of this prairie farm painting with a barn in the distance
Camp Fire – making camp by the river, the woman has got the fire going…..
Gold effect frame 2 1/2 x 3 inches

Going West – the horse is struggling to pull the wagon up the slope so the ladies are walking ….
Gold effect frame 2 3/4 x 2 1/4 inches

Mountain Sunset – the sun sets over the mountains
Gold effect frame 2 3/8th x 2 7/8th inches

Saloon – I had a lot of fun with this idea, I watched old western movies as a children, and the saloon was always featured, so I thought this scene was a nice addition to the collection.

Edit : this collection is now all sold

Vintage Portrait Lady Dollhouse Art :: Posted by: Hazel on February 26th, 2021

Period portrait style Lady paintings

Miniature Dollhouse Vintage Style Art

These are my latest miniature paintings.

In a period portrait style, the ladies have beautiful dresses and are posing for the portrait.

Sisters Grace and Polly and Lady Edwina, below in Antique style frames were the first I painted this week, these I feel have an Edwardian style.

I then went on to paint the more close up ladies in their gorgeous hats.

Commission : Of a begone time

I showed these online and they are now sold. Following this I was contacted by a miniature collector who asked me to paint some more lady pictures in a style of the era of “Lady Antoinette”.

My paintings are in my style so although they have a feel of the period please allow for  my own artistic licence. Also I’m a fan of the TV series Outlander and they have a period in one season where they are in Paris at this same time period, so Lady Claire (below in the gold dress) was inspired by Claire in Outlander dress …..

Lady Emma  gold frame 2 1/2 x 3 inches

Lady Claire   gold frame  2 1/2 x 3 inches

Lady Florentine antique style frame 3 1/2 x 2 1/2 inches

Duchess Anna antique style frame 3 1/2 x 2 1/2 inches

Commission Doll House Art

I hope you enjoy seeing these miniature commission paintings, if you would like a commission painted especially for you please get in touch and we can discuss your ideas.
