Art In Wax : Encaustic Art By Hazel Rayfield

Dollhouse 18th Century Portrait Paintings :: Posted by: Hazel on March 23rd, 2021

New Miniature Dolls House Paintings

A new style of “Lady” Portrait Paintings

These new paintings have lots of detail, I had fun painting these Lady’s with their outrageously decadent hats and dresses. A style that may have been from the French court 18th Century era.
Portrait painting

Named by Me …… mostly

They all have names, as do all my Lady Paintings…… Lady Pauline and Lady Octavia have masks as they attend The Masquerade Ball……

Lady Josephine is the unframed painting shown below and is 2 1/4 by 3 inches approximately and Lady Jacqueline in the wooden frame is wearing rather a lot of rouge !!!

All these paintings are painted using hot molten encaustic coloured wax, on specialist black gloss card.

They are shipping worldwide

These paintings are now sold, they are in homes in the U.K. (Manchester and Scotland) others are going to the Bahrain, Maryland USA and Spain.

Lady Caroline and Lady Marie France are the latest painting a commission by Lovely lady collector of mine…

Miniature Artist Painting a Dollhouse :: Posted by: Hazel on January 25th, 2021

How I painted a dollhouse !!

Painting a dollhouse

This is how I painted a dolls house picture…..

In fact I painted three dolls house paintings in Encaustic wax paint……

I was recently commissioned to paint a dollhouse for a lovely miniature art collector of mine in the Middle East. Ghaneya has challenged me on several occasions to paint for her, I love a challenge and painting for Ghaneya is always pleasure.

Such a fun project …..

This time the commission brief was to paint a two dollhouse paintings to go in her dollhouse, one pink and blue, one pink and white, other than that the style and design was left to me and artistic imagination.

I have seen photos of her own amazing dollhouse, it is beautiful and I decided to base the style of the pink and blue house on her own dollhouse. This was a lot of fun, with my enthusiasm and a slight cross communication and I painted a larger piece and a smaller piece ……

She wasn’t aware that I was styling the painting on her own dollhouse and when I sent her the photos….. her message was delightful.

“it is big 🤣🤣🤣🤣
I wanted it to fit in my dollhouse but I love what you did”

We had a laugh about it ……

Ghaneya sent me a photograph this morning as the paintings all arrived today, hence why I am now writing this post.

She now has all three paintings the large painting (9 x 7 inches) and the miniature blue and pink dollhouse in a gold frame both versions of her house and another piece with a dollhouse and toys which I called “playroom” in a heavy gold frame 3 1/4 x 3 1/4 inches.

So this is how I painted a dollhouse ……

As you will probably be aware of, I paint in Encaustic wax paint using specialist heat tools, I took a few photos in and between painting so you can see how this piece came together.

Thank you

Thank you Ghaneya for challenging me to paint for you, it was great fun. And thank you for allowing me to show your photograph of your wonderful dollhouse above.
