This was going to be 'Compact-Ted '

...I decided to do another miniature watercolour for my -Ted series. I carefully selected my Ted so, when painted, he would be 1/6th of his actual size which is the typical reduction for miniature work and then drew out a space that was 3 and 5/8 inches by 2 and 1/8 inches in size. The problem was Ted just didn't want to stay compact-Ted into such a small space.... he is much too keen on getting a hug instead

I guess I will have to call the painting 'Extricate-Ted' instead :)



  1. wow! That was fast and so much detail for such a small size. what brushes do you use?


  2. I used a 4/0 and and 5/0 Sandy. I also used a 2 round for the washes.

  3. I'm happy to say this painting has sold and will be on its way to its new home today

  4. wonderful! So much detail in such a tiny space

  5. Great Blog!! Great Art!! Thanks for the info
