Tiny Paintings by Lorraine Loots

"How?" I ask myself.

These tiny drawings by Cape Town artist Lorraine Loots are super detailed and incredibly beautiful.

Lorraine started this project in 2013 and the objective was to make a tiny painting every single day of the year. She sold all of those paintings and started the project again this year. She's already sold out every day of this year too (though there are still postcards available, of which she makes 5 every day)! So if you are in love with her work, you can reserve a future painting or postcard here: http://lorraineloots.com/paintings/september
