Painting Challenge: Tiny Painting

It’s time to get out your extra strength reading glasses… and paint small.  Really small.  🙂

Paint a TINY painting.     

Include the topic hashtag in your Watercolor – Beginners and Beyond Facebook group post: #tinypainting

Deadline May 27, 2022, 11:59 pm ET

We’ve done this challenge before and it’s so fun to see all the TINY paintings!   Make sure to take a picture of your painting next to something that will give a reference to its size (a coin, ruler).

What is the size limit?   

Nothing larger than 4 cm (1.57 inches)



What is the prize?   

All things tiny!   One random winner will receive this collection of tiny things!  Everything you need to make tiny paintings.
