Teeny Weeny Challenge: How Small Can I Draw?!

How small can you draw with a fine point pen, a magnifying glass, and some practice? Watercolor illustrator and YouTuber Kasey Golden finds out how small she can draw and paint in this ‘Teeny Weeny Challenge.’

She starts with a 5 x 7 inch (12.5 x 18 cm) Strathmore 140 lb. cold press watercolor paper, Micron pens, and QOR Watercolors, then continues to draw on five increasingly smaller pieces of paper. The multi-step exercise reveals her methods for maintaining the original character’s key details as it’s minified. If you try the challenge, too, @ her on Twitter or Instagram.
