Once considered an old-fashioned art, miniature painting has caught the imagination of a whole new generation of painters. Starting with information on basic materials, equipment and media, the book goes on to describe painting techniques, base preparations, and finishing and framing methods. Sample step-by-step projects include landscapes, flowers, animals and people and silhouettes. Elizabeth Davys Wood has exhibited regularly in London and can list miniatures in private collections all over the world. She is founder and president of the Society of Limners.
