This Artist Creates Tiny Oil Paintings On Pennies

According to Bryanna Marie: “I started painting miniatures a few years ago as a daily exercise, primarily with the goal to paint more often and hone my skills for finer detail in smaller compositions.

By the time I completed my first mini landscape, I was already fascinated by the amount of detail I was able to achieve on such a small surface and immediately wanted to paint another. Despite my original worries of this exercise becoming tedious at best, it quickly turned into my favorite part of the day.

The average painting can take up to ten hours to complete, but the process is stretched between multiple days to allow drying time between each layer. If I have multiple pieces I’m working on at once, it can take weeks to complete one piece. Everything I achieve is done traditionally using oils, along with simple mediums to help with the flow of the paints, and of course, tiny brushes.

I chose coins simply because I prefer to paint on metal, and preferably copper, so the penny was the perfect fit for the job. And yes, I do prefer pennies minted before 1981 because of their higher copper content!”
