Miniature Watercolors and wire
I embarked on a new project - I create original miniature watercolors, on paper or silk, and use them to create jewelry.
The paintings have  floral, landscape or abstract motifs. The desired shape is glued to additional layers of paper and then varnished to provide protection and a shine. A wire crocheted lace-like piece is overlaid around the rim and/or as a central motif and secured by wire wrapping.
To see more details and to purchase these unique items of jewelry please visit my etsy shop:…

Pnina Osguthorpe
Artist | Traditional Art
United States
My name is Pnina Osguthorpe and I'm known in several web communities as ArtPearl.


I am focusing on painting with transparent watercolors on paper, yupo or silk.
Many of my paintings depict hypothetical situations and imaginary scenes, striving to capture ideas and moods rather then a resemblance to specific places or people.
My favourite genre is surrealism, juxtaposing familiar elements with imaginary or abstract ones, in a dream like manner.
On occasion more than one way forward to express an idea or feeling suggest themselves. I like to explore these possibilities in different paintings and thus I have several ongoing themes.


Grew up in Israel, and lived in Ca USA, Wiltshire UK, Aurora Colorado and now in Penzance, Cornwall, UK

Saw your post on Renderosity Vue forum ;-); my last blog entry is about the thing.

B.t.w., if you are still interested in panoramas, you might be interested in exploring Unity, Unreal 4 and even Blender as tools.

It's a bit sad  actually - met some very nice people on that forum, too bad about the few bad apples...
Thanks for the recommendations about alternative software. I am focusing on my traditional painting at the moment. Also my computer is a bit old so some newer software doensnt work on it...I might get back to it when I upgrade.
