The Rainy Day Collection

My new series of miniature painting is “The Rainy Day Collection”

This is a new collection I have been working on this week. Each has a lady with an umbrella, most have a red umbrella but one wanted to be different and hers is blue.

A fun set of paintings these pieces of my art are all one size, 1 1/4 x 2 inches each, a couple are shown framed, the frames are a new commission, I had them made for me by a U.K. craftsman to my bespoke specifications, the white frames are 2 1/4 by 1 1/2 inches , they are wood painted white, these are only in temporary at the moment but any can be supplied framed.

I do love this quote

“Life isn’t about waiting for the storm to pass,
it’s about learning to dance in the rain”

The videos show the miniature paintings on Display in my art gallery 1:12th scale, and I thought this quote worked so well with the subject and also the times we are currently living in  ……

Miniature Art Commission Canada Rocky Mountains :: Posted by: Hazel on July 15th, 2020

Commissioning Miniature ArtFour paintings of Canadian winter scenes

New Commission Canadian Landscape Paintings

Today I airmailed four miniature paintings to Ottawa.

Last week I was contacted by lady in Canada who has a growing “little collection” of my miniature paintings, and whom I painted a special commission in a January.

This time she sent me photographs she had taken in Canada spanning the last 10 years, the brief being could I paint her a set of miniature paintings in the style of these landscape scenes……

As you will be aware if you have read my blog before, I’m an original artist, so when, like in this case, working from photos, the paintings still have a style of my own work and therefore I like to think of it as giving an impression of the scene not a direct copy, thus making it an original piece of my “Art In Wax”.

This commission was a challenge I must admit, when I first saw the photos I thought “this is going to be a fun project” which it was, I love to paint sunsets and winter landscapes, however it was the sunset that was the most challenging of these and took as many hours as the others paintings all put together….. it’s funny how that happens sometimes, but I’m happy with the results and so is the buyers I’m really happy to say.

To quote her …. “Wow – I love them all – Thank you so much”

4 paintings with the photos taken from

A few facts …..

The mountain landscape I’m told the photograph was taken in Jasper BC is the largest of the paintings and 3 1/2 x 2 1/2 inches. The lady asked me to frame this one so framed the overall size is 4 x 3 inches

Snow river, as I’m calling it was the smallest and is 2 x 1 5/8th inches

Sunset lake, a real challenge ! Is 2 3/4 x 2 1/4 inches

Autumn Lane, the path leading off into the distance is 2 1/2 x 1 3/4 inches.

Commissioning Hazel Rayfield

If you would like a miniature painting for your dollhouse or just a a piece of miniature art, why not get in touch and see if I can paint one especially for you.

How to paint a dolls house street scene :: Posted by: Hazel on April 13th, 2020

Painting A Dollhouse Miniature Street Landscape Window shopping dolls house picture

Window Shopping

Today I thought I would paint a street scene, I have painted this type of pictures in the past and I do love the challeng.

As I was painting this piece seemed to evolve and I’m calling it “Window Shopping” the lady is out walking her dog and looking at the dresses in the boutique windows.

It’s set in Spring and the blossom is in the tree and the window boxes are trailing pretty flowers.

On Display in The Gallery

The finished piece is shown here on display in my miniature 1:12th Art Gallery. It is 1 5/8th by 2 3/4 inches in size, painted on semi sheen card in encaustic wax paint.

I took some photographs as I started and then got a little carried away so the progress jumps a bit, but I hope you can see how it was painted.

Video Demonstration Painting Encaustic Art Dollhouse Flower Basket :: Posted by: Hazel on August 9th, 2019

Painting in Encaustic Wax in Miniature

Flower basket dollhouse painting
This what I’ve been getting up to today …..

Finishing my latest painting, a floral basket arrangement. This painting would be great in a period dollhouse or as a retro or vintage painting in a more modern miniature property

Video of me Painting

While I painted the final part of this miniature painting my husband Adrian filmed me, as it’s always fun to see how people create their work isn’t it

You can see in the film, I’m using encaustic wax paint and specialist encaustic tools to paint with. These tools have been adapted for me so I can paint tiny. The way I paint Is similar to painting with a knife at times but the wax is solid until I heat it. I use the ArtsEncaustic brand.

The painting is 2 x 2 1/2 inches in size and is now listed for sale in my Etsy store.

The snippets of me painting may jump about a bit ….. we had several goes as the noise in the background meant we had to stop a few times.
