Miniature Paintings

Very, very occasionally, I like to make miniature reproduction paintings. I painted these a couple of years ago using a combination of watercolours and acrylics. They are all either 12th or 24th scale, depending on the size of the original.

I think there's something so much nicer about having an actual painting in your dollhouse, rather than a photocopy of a masterpiece. Mine might not quite live up to the originals, but they have a miniature charm of their own (I think so at least).

Water Lily Pond by Monet
Mona Lisa by Da Vinci
And with a ruler so you get an idea of the size.
Whistler's Mother
The Scream by Edvard Munch
The frames where made by the lovely MiniBuilder who has a beautiful Etsy shop full of handmade wooden dollhouse furniture.
