Art Vending Machines – Miniature Seascapes Series

series of miniature seascapes

Miniature Seascapes

These are the first three of my series of miniature seascapes for the ArtSurprise vending machines.

That leaves me with only 97 more to do. At the present pace with all the other activities I have it will probably take a month.

It is good fun to paint these 5x8cm miniatures. It is also a challenge to think of 100 different scenes to paint from memory. Every painting is a new composition. The imagination has no limits.

The MDF board is 1cm thick and the material absorbs the acrylic paint quite rapidly. Therefore the colours look a bit different to what they look like on paper.

I use a 1/2 in brush for the underlay. After that it is down to No.3 and No.00 brushes. I might record a short video. I´ll keep you posted.

About Pat Harrison

Painting and drawing have been my passion from early childhood. I have attended numerous exhibitions in England and Germany. Presented with several awards for my paintings I now have one of my works on permanent display at a museum in Greater London with growing sales and commissions.

    Re. the MDF and its absorbency – is it worth a basecoat or two of emulsion (which is usually acrylic-based anyhow)?
    Lovely paintings – I like the lighthouse and its stormy sky best.
