I also finished the garden scene a few days ago. Again, color isn't quite correct. The rocks are a bit darker in the shadow areas, and appear "brighter" along the sunlit tops. It is actually prettier than this, but this will have to do...
I love to paint and I've found these miniatures are right up my alley. I love painting these little jewels.

A traditional miniature painting is defined by both size and technic. A true miniature is 25 square inches or less, and is highly detailed, able to withstand magnification and still look good, and generally the subject should be 1/6th scale or smaller. The origins of miniatures are ancient- originally illuminations in handwritten/made books, and later the beautiful miniature portraits that were carried and cherished by people before there was photography. True miniatures are tiny jewels of the artworld.
