“SIZE MATTERS” EXHIBITION – WA MARITIME MUSEUM

An exhibition of miniature paintings by members of the Watercolour Society of Western Australia. (Watercolourswa)

A miniature painting “is not a small painting but rather a life size painting in the little.” So said Samuel Cooper (1609-1672) one of the stars at the height of their popularity. A miniature is usually considered small enough to be held in the hand.

“This is Us”

The Society was formed in 1980 in Perth, Western Australia to promote public interest in watercolours and to advance the knowledge of members in watercolour painting. 

Since that time the Society has grown into a strong body of dedicated watercolourists committed to the pursuit of their chosen media.
