"Miniatures are not simply small paintings: special techniques are used to achieve their unique glow and luminosity. This book explains how to paint in detail in a small format with color and precision. Drawing on her extensive experience, Pauline Denyer-Baker shares her passion for painting miniatures, and inspires both beginner and more experienced artists to master and enjoy this historic art form. This wonderful introduction to the history and traditions of miniatures, set in place by Holbein, Hilliard, and Oliver, stresses on the importance of drawing and sketchbooks, and provides advice on materials, paints, bases, and framing. Included are step-by-step demonstrations of stippling and hatching, watercolor and oil painting, and color mixing; special focus is placed on portraits, still life, and silhouettes."
