The Artist Ian McCulley - Series 2. A selection of series of miniatures

I have always admired the Elizabethan miniatures of Nicholas Hilliard and Isaac Oliver. They are painted in watercolour on vellum. They are small and their “smallness” has the effect of intensifying the colours and the details within the portrait.

I started my series in 2005. There are now 100+ images , each measuring 110x55mm..

 

All acrylic on paper, and all 55 mm x 110 mm

Numbers 9 - 13 - 18 - 22 - 31- 33

Numbers 87 -  67 -  66 - 80 - 77 - 33

Numbers 9 - 86 - 85 - 71 - 83 - 49

These Miniatures is a series started in September 2005 as an A5 sketchbook exercise in colour combinations seen during morning walks.

There are over 100 individual works in this series- one third in sketchbooks.

The series has continued intermittently until the present day.
