The stages of a tiny Triptych by Miniature Artist Hazel Rayfield
African Landscape Sunset Dolls House Painting
I thought it might be of interest to show the stages of my latest Triptych miniature painting.
I paint using heat tools and specialist encaustic wax paints.
I started with cutting the specialist encaustic gloss painting card into the size I wanted in this case each piece is 2 1/4 x 1 inch.
Using a mix of red, orange and yellow wax paints I paint the sunset sky using a combination of my iron shaped stylus tool and hot air.
Then the landscape and trees start to form, the lake has a reflection of the sun setting sky and as the landscape evolved the path the ladies carring their goods, perhaps clothes and a urn for water the foreground takes shape.
Once completed I have given the painting a light polish with a cloth. I don’t use polish, varnish or sealer, just a light buff up with a soft cloth. This brings out the sheen of the wax.
I hope you like this little painting it is a dolls house size miniature.
