Miniature Size

Miniatures I call my graphic and fine art works that are 12 inches or 30 cm in their longest side or smaller.

Most often these artworks are intricate drawings in pen and ink or graphite.

Sometimes they are sketches, studies in preparation for artwork, work in progress, drawing studies, painting concepts, visual ideas notation, and experimentation that have artistic value.

A few examples of miniature-size art pieces would be:

  • A4 standard ~ 21 x 30 cm, or 210 x 297 mm (~ 8.27 x 11.69 inches),
  • B5 standard ~ 18 x 25 cm, or 176 x 250 mm (~ 6.9 x 9.8 inches),
  • A5 standard ~ 15 x 21 cm, or 148 x 210 mm (~ 5.8 x 8.3 inches),
  • A6 standard ~ 11 x 15 cm, or 105 x 148 mm (~ 4.1 x 5.8 inches),
  • US Letter standard - 8.5 by 11 inches (215.9 by 279.4 mm),
  • 9 x 12", bigger than the letter-sized paper.
