Not to take anything away from Rachel Beltz‘ adorable and detailed miniature watercolor sketches, but they weren’t the things that motivated me. It was rather that she revealed how close we all are to crossing the line between thinking of doing something and doing it, and turning ourselves into artists in the process.
“My first set of miniature watercolor paintings was created in secret – Christmas gifts for my family,” the 20-year-old artist explained Bored Panda. “They had fallen in love with these gifts – the looks on their faces had made me feel alive again. Their happiness and joy brought me back into the world of art. These miniatures would be the first step in branching out into the realm of sharing my work- something I’ve never been comfortable with doing.“
