Bluebell Wood Dolls House Painting

Original miniature dollhouse art

Inspired by our walk in the woods at Hanningfield Essex over the Easter holiday weekend I decided to paint some of the amazing array of bluebells we saw on our walk. We have been tobsee the bluebells here before but this year they really are out in full, apparently it is an early show this year so we were especially pleased to see them and enjoy the colourful display.

This is my take on a miniature bluebell landscape, I hope you like it. It is 2×2 inches and currently listed in my Etsy store.

First Commission of 2017

Highland Cow – Modern Dolls House Art

Happy New Year to all my blog followers.

I was thinking of a subject for the first blog post of the new year when I received a commission to paint a miniature highland cow for a dolls house owner in Scotland, so I thought the first commission of the year would make a great first blog post of 2017.

Commissioned Art For Modern Dolls House

The miniature collector asked if I could paint a highland Cow picture for her dolls house, as this is a her favourite animal and she has several pictures in her home and it would be fun to have a miniature painting for her miniature property.

I painted two for choice and she has order both, the landscape has the cow in a heather filled grassland, this is an impressionist piece and has been supplied in a black wooden frame size 3 x 4 inches. The other piece of art is a on encaustic cream gloss card and is a modern, more of a portrait style just 2 1/2 inches high.

The photos shown here are on display in my own miniature property : The Gallery which is my 1:12 scale art gallery.

Teddy Bears Picnic :: Posted by: Hazel on September 27th, 2016

A Teddy Bears Picnic – Miniature Art In Wax

How a fun commission turned into an exhibition

I love to do commissions (I only do commissions in my style – no copies or reproductions) and I was delighted this month to be commissioned to paint a Teddy Bear which will be residing in a Dolls House Nursery.

The bear in question was Top Hat Teddy (see photo). The brief was to, and I quote, “Surprise Me”
The lady who commissioned me has been a collector of Art In Wax for a while now and wanted a new Teddy painting for her themed room, so I let my imagination have fun with the project and come up with this small collection of Teddy paintings …..

It was great fun to paint these cute little paintings and I kept getting more ideas, so after a couple of days in the studio I came up with this new selection which you can see here on display as a “Teddy Bear Painting Exhibition” in The Gallery which is my 1:12 Art Gallery, which I have spoken about many times on my blog ……

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 ;-)
