Small paintings and plein air painting were made for each
other. When we say small, we mean sizes 5” x 5”, 5” x 7”, 8” x10”.
The Benefits of painting small are numerous. Here are just a few of them:
We feel freer to try different things when we paint small. Creativity thrives on us feeling safe. Having a sense of play keeps our childlike wonder alive.
A wonderful tiny creation is often a prelude to a larger painting of similar design. It acts as a proto-type in miniature – like those little scale models architects use to show a new building design to a client.
If you sell your art, micro paintings are affordable to your
collectors. They also require less wall
space and can be tucked away onto small walls and in tiny dwellings with ease. In today's economy, making original art affordable is the way to go. We prefer this to selling prints as a business idea.
If you are down sizing your living and/or art space, baby-sized paintings are for you, whether you create art or collect it.
Small paintings exude a jewel-like quality that is quite enchanting.
One of the most famous paintings of all time – The Mona Lisa – is small. Size is no definer of quality in the case of art.
So create and play – paint small and then, think Big!
