work in progress: miniatures

meganspiers portraits art table

Working on two miniatures for this year’s Sydney Royal.

I’m using Hahnemuhle paper – postcard size, since this keeps me under the 100cm-square worked area limit.

Although the palette is the same for both paintings, I have emphasised stronger, cooler colours for the boy with a heavy background to draw attention to his hands and expression of concentration.

Looser brushstrokes and lighter hues evoke the enthusiasm of a little girl’s impromptu fashion parade.
