Authentic Miniature Paintings and
Small Works by Mona Diane Conner
I have such a soft spot for this one Mona - you are so patient the way you work on pieces over a period of time. I'm afraid I get bored and lose interest, but your patience definitely pays off!!!
Thanks Karen. Working on several blogs and on various projects as I do means that my work on any one thing also can get interrupted for a few weeks, and that's not easy, but it keeps life interesting, and my hope is that the energy I get from one project feeds directly into the next.
Wow Mona,This is beautiful. Do you use glazes with the oil so the gold shows through? Never done anything like that!
Gail, thanks. Yes, my paint is thin, and dotting strokes with my brush allows the gold to come through also.
Mona, this piece is quite remarkable. You really went the extra mile by applying the gold leaf. The colours are very vibrant and fresh looking and will probably last forever because of your painstaking process.
Thank you Vern.
Wow! This is so beautiful, Mona! Each tulip must be so tiny. I don't think I can ever do such detailed work. Looking forward to seeing the finished work. :)
So beautiful Mona! You've really managed to get so many tiny details in this! I'm enjoying the progress on this. Thanks for sharing.
Thanks Akiko and Barbara!
