This is a project called “Cycling Guide to Lilliput” I started this year, which combines my twin passions – miniature painting and long-distance cycling.
I used the sketchbooks, photographs and memories I have accumulated over the last 10 years of cycling adventures to create this series of miniature paintings. Each miniature takes between 10-20 hours.
I used Northern Renaissance oil painting techniques and combine them with modern materials such as Plexiglas and Mylar.

These are based on a forest fire I saw while camping in Northerm Germany two summers ago. The next morning it turned out that it was a seaside restaurant that burnt to the ground (no one got hurt), and made the forest on one side of it look like it caught fire | Oil paintings on plexiglas, 2″ diameter each
