Miniature Figurative Art

Miniature artwork is fine art on a small scale. The size of miniatures varies widely. Some standards are as specific as to be no larger than 5"x7", including the frame. Some allow the image to be up to 11"x14". Other experts discard the idea of size completely and look solely at the miniaturization factor, as long as the objects depicted are smaller than actual life-size. Each culture has its own rules. The most obvious and universal definition of miniature art is that the work must be small; usually small enough to fit in the palm of your hand.

This is a couple of the small drawings I did Monday night at the figure drawing session. I also did some small watercolours, but they still need some work.
