I've been wanting to rework Tammy for a while and today was the day. I much prefer the dark background.

Larger paintings should be created with a long handle brush which allows the artist to step back further and view the work from the same distance it will be seen at in a home or gallery. Miniatures are usually designed to be enjoyed in an album or placed somewhere where detail can be observed closeup and so are often created at a desk with a short handled brush.

I've been experimenting with miniatures that have distant impact and draw you in. This can be observed better on my Daily Paintworks site by looking at the image thumbnail. This painting of a Tamarin has impact which far exceeds its diminutive size and should be seen from a distance.
