I started on my birthday, 9 February 2016, with a challenge to produce one miniature painting per day for a year…

Seeing that 2016 is a leap year, that means 366 mini paintings. The traditional miniature painting size is about 10x10cm, and portraits (that were very popular in Victorian times) 1/6 (one sixth) life-size.

As the days went by, I ended up making all my paintings the size of a £1 coin.

This pen and wash painting was my first go at it – while we were on holiday in the South African Bushveld – at the lovely lodge of dear friends Willem and Esthie Steyn.

I’m dreaming about an exhibition of all 366 paintings after 8 February 2017 – there will be a lot of framing to do!
