Art In Wax : Encaustic Art By Hazel Rayfield

Vintage Portrait Lady Dollhouse Art :: Posted by: Hazel on February 26th, 2021

Period portrait style Lady paintings

Miniature Dollhouse Vintage Style Art

These are my latest miniature paintings.

In a period portrait style, the ladies have beautiful dresses and are posing for the portrait.

Sisters Grace and Polly and Lady Edwina, below in Antique style frames were the first I painted this week, these I feel have an Edwardian style.

I then went on to paint the more close up ladies in their gorgeous hats.

Commission : Of a begone time

I showed these online and they are now sold. Following this I was contacted by a miniature collector who asked me to paint some more lady pictures in a style of the era of “Lady Antoinette”.

My paintings are in my style so although they have a feel of the period please allow for  my own artistic licence. Also I’m a fan of the TV series Outlander and they have a period in one season where they are in Paris at this same time period, so Lady Claire (below in the gold dress) was inspired by Claire in Outlander dress …..

Lady Emma  gold frame 2 1/2 x 3 inches

Lady Claire   gold frame  2 1/2 x 3 inches

Lady Florentine antique style frame 3 1/2 x 2 1/2 inches

Duchess Anna antique style frame 3 1/2 x 2 1/2 inches

Commission Doll House Art

I hope you enjoy seeing these miniature commission paintings, if you would like a commission painted especially for you please get in touch and we can discuss your ideas.

Art Gallery 1:12th Scale :: Posted by: Hazel on July 28th, 2020

Art Gallery 1:12th Scale

The Gallery is my folly……

I have painted for many years, Encaustic about nine years now.

Adrian my husband built  The Gallery for me some years ago, when I had been painting in miniature and for dolls houses a while and it was just a natural progression. I have blogged many times about the Gallery including a back story …… See below for more on that

The Gallery Today

The Gallery my miniature art gallery
My Art Gallery ….. Take The Tour 2020

I wasn’t brave enough to go Facebook Live but this is inside my Art Gallery right now …..

Posted by Art In Wax on Monday, 27 July 2020

My miniature art is for sale, I have a wide range of subjects and themes online for sale, links in the Blog side border to my Etsy Store.

The paintings on the walls of the gallery are not available to buy but if you like one why not commission me to paint one for you.

The Gallery : The Back Story

When we were planning and building The Gallery some years ago we (my husband Adrian – he built it for me, I just paint the pictures) chatted and a “back story” developed over time so just for fun I wrote a blog post share our (frictional) story …….

The property at 27 Coast Road is a Victorian double fronted shop property which started life as a bakery called The Granary…. more on my blog https://www.artinwax.co.uk/blog/the-gallery-112-scale-miniature-scene-art-gallery/

Miniature Art Commission Canada Rocky Mountains :: Posted by: Hazel on July 15th, 2020

Commissioning Miniature ArtFour paintings of Canadian winter scenes

New Commission Canadian Landscape Paintings

Today I airmailed four miniature paintings to Ottawa.

Last week I was contacted by lady in Canada who has a growing “little collection” of my miniature paintings, and whom I painted a special commission in a January.

This time she sent me photographs she had taken in Canada spanning the last 10 years, the brief being could I paint her a set of miniature paintings in the style of these landscape scenes……

As you will be aware if you have read my blog before, I’m an original artist, so when, like in this case, working from photos, the paintings still have a style of my own work and therefore I like to think of it as giving an impression of the scene not a direct copy, thus making it an original piece of my “Art In Wax”.

This commission was a challenge I must admit, when I first saw the photos I thought “this is going to be a fun project” which it was, I love to paint sunsets and winter landscapes, however it was the sunset that was the most challenging of these and took as many hours as the others paintings all put together….. it’s funny how that happens sometimes, but I’m happy with the results and so is the buyers I’m really happy to say.

To quote her …. “Wow – I love them all – Thank you so much”

4 paintings with the photos taken from

A few facts …..

The mountain landscape I’m told the photograph was taken in Jasper BC is the largest of the paintings and 3 1/2 x 2 1/2 inches. The lady asked me to frame this one so framed the overall size is 4 x 3 inches

Snow river, as I’m calling it was the smallest and is 2 x 1 5/8th inches

Sunset lake, a real challenge ! Is 2 3/4 x 2 1/4 inches

Autumn Lane, the path leading off into the distance is 2 1/2 x 1 3/4 inches.

Commissioning Hazel Rayfield

If you would like a miniature painting for your dollhouse or just a a piece of miniature art, why not get in touch and see if I can paint one especially for you.
