Art In Wax : Encaustic Art By Hazel Rayfield

Cottage Collection Miniature Dolls House Art :: Posted by: Hazel on November 22nd, 2017

Cottage Landscape Miniature Art

Dollhouse and Miniature Art

Just a very quick post today as I have been very busy with painting and not had a lot of time for blogging, but I wanted to show my latest pieces of Art In Wax ….

These new paintings are all in a pretty soft and colorful style and each features a pretty cottage in the landscape.

They are proving very popular and this month several have gone to new homes for dolls houses and miniature collectors both here in the UK and overseas. In fact of the five paintings shown here currently the only one still available is the one in the black frame …. but never fear there will be more of these ….

Why not check out my Art In Wax Etsy store or follow my Art In Wax page on Facebook where I show all my new pictures first.

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.

Vintage Car Landscape Miniature Art By miniature artist Hazel Rayfield :: Posted by: Hazel on June 9th, 2016

Vintage Car Landscape

New Miniature Art

With father’s day approaching I thought I would try something different, so this miniature painting is for my Dad.

Its a landscape with a green vintage car, its not a specific car, we can in trouble saying its based on this or that but its in the style of a vintage car and my Dad will know what I was implying !!!

I have painted the picture on my encaustic card then layered it onto a linen textured card to give the effect of a mount then it has been framed in a handmade wooden frame (I recently commissioned this and several other frames in different sizes, colours and styles from a craftsman here in the UK).

This frame is 3 x 4 inches, black painted wood and has a recess so it looks like a box frame. I don’t normally add any covering to my miniature paintings but this frame has a perfex front. As the box of the frame is deep and the painting texture not too high in this picture the covering doesn’t come near the wax paint. As with most painting medium it is recommended that the picture does NOT touch the glass, with all my paintings, large or in miniature I recommend that if you are going to frame a piece of Art In Wax you ensure that the painting is mount in such a way that the glass does not touch the wax, equally I personally feel they look great without a covering at all, as the wax has a lovely texture and sheen.

This painting is not for sale as its for my Dad, but don’t forget I paint commissions too ;-)

Allium Landscape Art In Wax by Hazel Rayfield :: Posted by: Hazel on December 29th, 2015

Allium Landscape – last post of 2015

My newest painting – Art In Wax

I feels only right to make the last blog post of 2015 about the last painting of 2105, this is my latest piece of Art in Wax finished today, it is a colorful landscape in encaustic wax on specialist gloss card and is a large piece at A3 in size.

Alliums are one of my favorite flowers, I hope you like the painting, please feel free to leave me a comment below …..

Alliums, also known as ornamental onions, are grown for their showy flower heads, which come in wide range of sizes and shades of blue, purple, white and yellow. Even when the plants die back, the dried flower heads look attractive in the garden, or can be cut for indoor display.

Sunset Tree Encaustic Art Painting Hazel Rayfield :: Posted by: Hazel on May 20th, 2015

Sunset Landscape

I thought it might be fun to show my latest painting on the blog today. This is an A3 size picture that I have mounted in a 16 x 20 inch mount and is shown here in a frame just for display.

This painting is currently for sale at the time of posting, contact me if you would like to buy it – it is £60 including the mount and UK postage but not including the frame, I am happy to ship worldwide but that would increase the postage costs.

In large and miniature too …..

As you can see below there are also two tiny versions of this painting, I couldn’t resist painting smaller ones too ….. ideal for a dolls house at just 56 x 37 mm and 28 x 20 mm compared to the larger one which was 420 x 295 mm before mounting !!!
