Babbling Brook

Based on this episode I painted an other small picture in format 15 x 10 cm. It’s definitely a challenge for me, this one took me around 50 minutes to finish. Maybe I paint a few additional of these tiny ones.


The waterfall and tree trunks are excellent. I took a long time to paint branches well. I recommend you that practice branches with script liners without paint (water only) on paper

What lesson have you learnt from the tiny paintings? Or is it too early yet to judge?

Thanks Jin7 for the hint, I will try this. @Sunnylady: maybe the lesson I learned as of now is, that the small formats are more complex than the bigger ones (for me, maybe for others they are not). Maybe I do not have a proper equipment for this format, as I mainly paint in 30 X 40 cm and sometimes in 24 x 30 cm. On the other hand if they are framed properly they look much better than in the close up photo here as you can see all the small mistakes here.

I zoomed out it on my screen to have them right the size of the canvas. yeah, it changed the perception as hid quite a lot of the details. I thing it will be fantastic with big matting! I saw the same challenge when I did 10 by 10 inch painting. It was surely more challenging for me as well and I did not go further to the decreasing of the canvas size. I thought that something wrong with my hands... :) but when I went back to the bigger size everything was normal.
