Miniature artworks pose a unique challenge to artists. Considerable dexterity is required, and minute mistakes can take on epic proportions. On the other hand, the rewards of working on a tiny scale can be plentiful. Here, Libecap, an expert miniature painter, walks readers through the process of creating tiny realistic paintings, each measuring about an inch-and-a-half square, of animals, food and drink, things and people, and places. Each section includes several step-by-step projects followed by numerous pages of finished miniature artworks.
VERDICT Readers of intermediate or advanced artistic ability, especially those in search of variety, will get a kick out of this book.
