Miniatures: ‘Painting for Ants’

mini17South African miniaturist Lorraine Loots is celebrated for her remarkable ability to create these highly detailed thumb-sized works with the naked eye.

The 1×1″ watercolors began with Loots’ two-year mission to complete a piece a day for a year, starting in 2013 with 365 Paintings for Ants.

 

 

Since then, she’s captured a huge following.  Three Kings Studio where she has exhibited says part of the appeal is Loots reinvented the 18th Century diminutive art form of miniatures for the Instagram age.
