My miniature paintings have had an amazing response of the past few years and I sale more of these than any other size now and I have to admit they are my favorites and most challenging to paint …..

Miniature art is not just for Dolls Houses, they are also very popular as an art collectible.

Flower Cottage Landscapes Online art exhibition by Hazel Rayfield :: Posted by: Hazel on August 12th, 2016

Flower Cottage Landscapes : Online art exhibit by Hazel Rayfield

Miniature Art In Wax meets “Room” size Art In Wax

Today sees the launch of a brand new collection of my Encaustic Art : Flower Cottage Exhibition

This online feature for the Art In Wax exhibition page brings together my love of painting in miniature and my love of painting flowers.

The collection, which can ve viewed online on my exhibition page : http://www.artinwax.co.uk/exhibit-flower-cottage-landscapes.php, comprises of six paintings, each A6 in size (so approx. 6 x 4 inches) each, and features a miniature cottage painting with a foreground of vibrant flowers.

Inspiration : My Dolls House size Art

My miniature paintings especially my tiny “Dolls House Art” are very popular, I am proud that in the past few years several hundred of my small paintings have travelled to new dolls house homes and miniature collections across the world, I still paint larger pieces and these too continue to be as popular as ever.

I have, painted miniature versions of my larger pieces of art at different times, all my art is original, some inspired by nature and some just from my imagination. I don’t create prints or paint reproductions. Some of my art has a theme but no two paintings are them same even if in a similar theme.

I have sold larger pieces and miniature similar versions, which have been sold as sets, “one for you home and one for your dollhouse” !! I have also sold a few of these my “miniature meets wall art” paintings, in the same theme as this collection, so I thought it would be fun to work on a collection in this style for an exhibit feature, and as you can see below this is what I came up with ….

These paintings are for sale, this are painted on encaustic gloss card and backed with a coloured card, they are signed on the back and are £10 each plus postage and packaging.

Art In Wax by Southend based artist Hazel Rayfield :: Posted by: Hazel on July 21st, 2016

Painting onto a different type of Card

Recently I have been working painting with my encaustic wax on some patterned papers I bought from a local craft shop and they have a very different effect so I thought I would show some here today.

These design papers have an abstract print in what, I feel are rustic / distressed / shabby paper chic style. They are a 200gsm Matt paper support, unlike the encaustic card I mostly paint on which is a gloss. The gloss card allows the wax to move and flow, it allows for blending on the support. The Matt surface is porous so when the wax is on its on !! I blend colours before applying more and a little by reheating the wax once in place. It gives an interesting effect and the wax has a great contrast in texture to the paper background.

I have painted these three pictures : Red Poppies : Purple and red poppies : Flower pot in this style recently and as you can see the results are modern style pieces of wall art. Each of these paintings are 6 inches wide, and different heights I have cropped the photos for this blog post but they are for sale and I can send more information on sizes and if you would like them mounted or not. Please contact me for more details on how to buy Art in Wax.

I have also painted some miniatures in this way using tiny pieces of these patterned paper. And in the next blog post I will show photos of me painting in miniature in this way.

Art In Wax Encaustic and Miniature Artist Hazel Rayfield :: Posted by: Hazel on July 1st, 2016

Art In Wax Encaustic Art By Hazel Rayfield

Lots going on at Art In Wax

I thought it might be fun to do a brief update on what’s going on with Art In Wax at the moment.

I have been painting lots of new pictures. Large and small, some of which are online in my Etsy and web shops. Some don’t make it into the stores as many sell as soon as I show them on Facebook, twitter etc so some of these I post on the website sold page, to show the new ideas and commissions. I have been doing more commissions than ever before, I love the challenge of painting for a specific theme or client idea. All commissions are original, I don’t do copies or reproductions.

I am happy to mail internationally

I sent my first painting to Germany this week which means pieces of Art In Wax are now in 15 countries on 3 continents. I have to pinch myself when I think hundreds of my paintings are hanging on walls and being displayed in homes and offices across the globe, sent from my small studio here in Southend Essex.

Miniature Art In Wax

I have painted small size pictures as well as wall art for a long time, my ACEO collectible pieces have always been popular and in the past couple of years I have seen a big rise in the popularity of my tiny dolls house and collectible miniature art which is great as I do love the challenge of painting tiny.

Lots of projects in the pipeline

Over the past 5 years of painting and showing my encaustic art online I have met and communicated online with many of the people who now own pieces of my work, it is lovely to know how much they are appreciated. These people have become part of the Art In Wax and my journey, some have inspired me and challenged me in many ways for which I am very appreciative.

As you can see from my blog my work has been featured in magazines, blogs and on YouTube. And I am currently working on an article with The Dolls House magazine for a artist profile piece coming out in 2017. I also have a couple of ideas for new blog posts on my blog. Including a look at Art In Wax in situ which I am currently researching.

Thank you for your continued support, if you would like to leave a comment on the blog please do :-)
