How to paint a dolls house street scene :: Posted by: Hazel on April 13th, 2020

Painting A Dollhouse Miniature Street Landscape Window shopping dolls house picture

Window Shopping

Today I thought I would paint a street scene, I have painted this type of pictures in the past and I do love the challeng.

As I was painting this piece seemed to evolve and I’m calling it “Window Shopping” the lady is out walking her dog and looking at the dresses in the boutique windows.

It’s set in Spring and the blossom is in the tree and the window boxes are trailing pretty flowers.

On Display in The Gallery

The finished piece is shown here on display in my miniature 1:12th Art Gallery. It is 1 5/8th by 2 3/4 inches in size, painted on semi sheen card in encaustic wax paint.

I took some photographs as I started and then got a little carried away so the progress jumps a bit, but I hope you can see how it was painted.

Modern Miniature Dolls House Paintings :: Posted by: Hazel on March 26th, 2020

Modern Miniature Dolls House Paintings

In these extraordinary times, staying at home, staying as safe as we can, caring for our family and being there at a distance for our friends and neighbours, we need to be mindful and for me creativity is so, so helpful.

So I’ve been in my studio this week, and this is what I’ve come up with, these are my latest miniature paintings. I love painting flowers and I’m sure I will be painting lots more over the coming weeks.

A New Collection “Flowers : Bringing The Outdoors In”

These four new flower pieces are painted in my Encaustic wax paint onto a mount card so 2mm deep, they have a modern canvas style, I’ve painted the background and the edges have some coverage by the card on the back is white. More paintings in different style will branch off from this collection I’m sure.

Miniature Dolls House Picture Hanging :: Posted by: Hazel on March 18th, 2020

The Gallery Miniature Art By Hazel Rayfield

So today I’ve been in The Gallery……

The Gallery is my 1:12th Miniature Art Gallery that my husband Adrian built for me a few years ago, and as I’m sure many miniature and dollhouse creators and collectors will be able to relate to …… it is forever evolving.

Adrian has never built a full miniature property before, he is very patient and meticulous making a beautiful miniature property that I have filled with tiny pieces of my art. I just love it !!!

As I say it is evolving and I like to add things and change thing around from time to time. Today I have been replacing some older pictures and adding a few in the gaps, there isn’t much wall space left now !

Just some of today’s changes, the parrot paintings replace the flowers pots and the roses replace the vase of blooms.

How about a little tour ….. Please see at the bottom of this post a tour of The Gallery today once I finished my picture hanging.

Filming yourself hanging a painting on the wall of a miniature property is not easy lol

How “The Wedding Store” development came to be ……

I was a web developer and did graphic design for many years and although my art is my passion as well as my work now I do still tinker with the digital too.

I created these wall murals to be the back drop for my new collection of wedding paintings. The brides …. Boho Bride – Spring Bride – La Bella Bride take center stage the walls also show my newest paintings of dressed miniature mannequin paintings.

The Wedding Store Miniature diorama

Boho Bride Spring Bride and La Bella Bride are centre stage.

The walls have lots of mannequin dressed in bride dresses ….. not all brides wear white how about a black or red wedding dress?
