Petite Pine, 4″ x 4″ miniature watercolor painting by Linda Abblett of a pine cone. How can such a small painting look so photographic? A petite pine cone indeed.

Miniature art is fine art. Miniature art should challenge the viewer’s belief as to what is possible for an artist to create in such a small space. Miniature art is a specialty art, not a novelty art. Through the ages it has been considered an art form. Miniature paintings most often feature extremely detailed work, exquisite in color with a strength of composition which can more than compete with larger paintings though the scale is gentle, no more than 1/6th the size of the actual subject.

A miniature usually takes as long or longer to produce as a large piece of art. A fine miniature can be magnified many times and it will still hold together as a fine work of art of much greater size. Most artists can work in larger standard sizes, but few have the skill and discipline to work in miniature. This unique art form, based on a minute scale, traces its roots back to the book paintings and illuminated manuscripts of the 7th century.
