This guide concerns the traditional art of miniature painting. These small, detailed portraits, originally painted in the style of medieval manuscripts, were often painted by jewellers who set them into pendants or boxes. The paintings were often used for identification. Today the materials and purposes of miniatures has changed, but the techniques remain the same - a process of building luminosity, details and a smooth surface with thin layers of paint. This book provides an overview of the miniature painting process through to how to paint miniature landscapes, still lifes and portraits, colour harmony, use of gold leaf in miniature painting, and painting silhouettes.
Step-by-step demonstrations are included. Softcover with flaps. Printed on glossy paper. Arrange your work area and gather materials you'll need.

Clean interior. Minor creasing to front cover at bottom edge. The eighteenth-century was an age of careful balance between classicism and romanticism in the arts and one moulded by the tension between individualism and the rise of middle-class taste. Stephen Jones outlines the main artistic developments of this period, relating them at all points to the experience of daily life in the age and highlighting the important figures in the arts whose careers exemplify the general themes - from Madame de Pompadour to Gainsborough and Nash.
This introduction does not assume a wide-range of background knowledge. Themes are explained in context and technical terms made clear. The book introduces important elements that have often been given insufficient emphasis: the central place of the garden and landscaped park in the taste of patrons and builders and the influence of both French and Industrial revolutions on eighteenth-century art.
