The Designer Collection – Fashion Miniature Dolls House Art :: Posted by: Hazel on June 20th, 2020

The Designer Collection – Fashion Miniature Art

These new paintings are brand new, I painted them in June (2020), one of my favourite subjects to paint, dresses !!!

“Designer Collection” – Fashion Miniature Paintings

Their is a selection of styles and I’ll list how I see them and the sizes etc below.

However with all things artistic I believe that beauty is in the eye of the beholder. We all see different things in a painting and of course the setting makes all the different too.

These pieces could be thought of for a dolls house or miniature property such as a shop, boutique or haberdashery store. In a dollhouse maybe in a ladies boudoir or a sewing room ……

What do you think ? Why not leave me a comment and let me know.

Dollhouse fashion paintings

Red Dress / Black Dress Set of Two Paintings
Size : 2 x 1 1/4 inches each. Glamour is the style I was going for, these dresses on mannequin could be ball gowns or prom dresses, or even “the bride wore black (or red). 

The 50’s …… this piece with two dresses is 2 inches square more or less ! I like hats and I thought these dresses would have hats to compliment the look, a wide brimmed one and a pillbox with a veil.

Red Green Blue ….. three very stunning sophisticated dresses, this painting is 2 1/4 by 1 1/2 inches in size. They could be period or modern day, ball gown or lady of a different age.

Designer dresses …… and some designer wallpaper, it took nearly as long to get the background of this piece right as it did to paint the dresses. Lots of detail in this piece which is the largest piece in this collection at 2 1/2 inches by 2 1/4 inches.

Lilac and Lavender….. this set of two paintings are the smallest in the collection at a tiny 1 inch wide each. They are 1 1/2 inches high.

The Corsets ….. the red corset on the mannequin is 2 3/4 by 1 1/2 inches and the black one is slightly larger at 3 by 1 1/2 inches. These panel style pieces are always very popular with my collectors so I wanted to include some in this new collection.

I hope you like them …… and these miniature paintings are for sale.

Dollhouse Artist New Paintings :: Posted by: Hazel on June 17th, 2020

New miniature dollhouse paintings

An Eclectic Artist

I have been painting lots of new subjects these past few weeks and I thought maybe a post to show the diverse Themes I have working on and I fully admit I am a very eclectic Artist.

Today I painted the Strawberry cottage, which is shown here in a gold effect frame, size 2 x 2 1/2 inches. The Peacock in full feather was a challenge and is a very pretty piece in a frame 3 x 4 inches, one of my larger miniature paintings and works as a statement piece in a miniature dollhouse or as a piece of miniature art in a life size home

Lots of new paintings listed and many now on their way to new homes …..

Some of these are sold now but if you see a subject you would like please get in touch and I maybe able to paint a commission in a similar style for you  no two of my paintings are the same, as each is original and unique.

Another Highland Cow abstract painting This is “Golden Cow” and at 2 x 2 1/4 inches is prefect for 1:12th size properties.

Miniature Paintings Celebrating VE Day :: Posted by: Hazel on May 7th, 2020

Miniature Paintings Celebrating VE Day

These are my new paintings, there are three pieces with a theme, miniature dollhouse art, shown here in my 1:12th Art Gallery, inspired by the VE Day celebrations of VE 75 here in England in 2020. Victory in Europe (VE) Day on 8 May 1945 is the day celebrating the end of World War II.

“Fly By Poppies”

Displayed and sold in a gold effect frame the overall size being 2 1/4 by 2 3/4 inches this landscape has aircraft flying over a poppy field.

“Wave”

Vintage clothed people standing in a poppy field, waving and waving flags as a plane flys over head, the size of this piece is 2 1/8 by 1 5/8th inches.

“Street Party”

A misty impression of a back drop with Big Ben in the distance gives this piece a sense of the day, Londoners having a party in the street dressed in vintage clothes, they could be of the time or more modern times dressed for a vintage fashion party, you decide. This piece 3 1/2 by 2 1/2 inches so a statement size piece for a dollhouse, I have sold many paintings this size for 1:12th or larger Scale dolls houses plus it is ACEO size so could be a nice addition for a collection.
