Tiny Gouache Paintings

Falmouth Cafe, Gouache 8 x 12 cm  or 3 x 4.5 inches
 Tiny gouache paintings, or gouacheletts, perhaps a study for bigger paintings.  These are a very good way of testing all sorts of things, composition, colour, can a subject maintain interest long enough to make it to a bigger canvas.
Sweet-peas, Gouache 8 x 12 cm or 3 x 4.5 inches
 Plus...I love doing them, tiny little jewel like paintings, precious miniatures. I have a thing for bonsai trees too, and dolls houses, and tiny tea sets, see there is a tiny cup in the painting above!  My house is full of minute ephemera.

Small is beautiful!
