Astoundingly Tiny, Detailed Watercolor Paintings


Pennsylvania-based artist Rachel Beltz creatures miniature watercolors of everyday objects and people she loves. (We first learned about her on Design You Trust.) Beltz’s artworks are simple, but incredibly realistic and detailed, rendered with loving care.

From the artist’s website: “Rachel constantly pushes the boundaries of this fluid medium; squeezing in all of the details she can, like the seed of a strawberry or the wrinkle of an elephant. The fast-paced society that she grew up in has caused her to want to make a difference.” Mastering the art of watercolor is no small feat, even if your paintings are the size of a quarter.
