Miniature Sunset

Judy tackled the fiery skies and rosy atmosphere of a winter sunset over the Peace Country, Canada in this watercolour miniature.  Its tiny dimensions are full of wonderful light and colour, just as we see it here in Northern Canada.  Winter is very beautiful and ever changing here.

Miniature Morning

Judy’s miniature scene captures the intensity of a winter sunrise over the Peace Country.  The colours are always spectacular.  I see there is a hair in the middle of the shot.  That just shows how small these paintings are.  I also see a tiny cabin on the far left side, in the trees.  It is amazing how much detail can be suggested in a miniature painting.

The Lodge Ladies inspired this one.  When they did their background forests with a dry brush, the white of the paper looked like hoar frost spilling from the boughs in a puff of warm air.  Mine didn’t quite achieve that look, but it did make the sunshine look nice and strong. Maybe all the frost already melted.
