Fruit Trees Island | Handmade Miniature Island | Mixed-media artwork | Diorama | Houses | Trees | Village | Medieval
In spring there's blossom in the fruit trees. The whole island is buzzing with the sound of the bees. The villagers love their fruit trees and love their island and cosy cottages on it. They meet at the well in the centre of the island to chat and rest after hard labor! They have their own vegetable gardens and the men go out fishing every now and then.
It's almost time to pick the fruit from the trees and celebrate the harvest!
Life is wonderful on this island and you can be a part of it when every you feel like it!
Dream away and create your own story about this little Dream Island!
Fruit Tree Island is a S-shaped island. It was nice to make an island in a different shape, I might even try some more!
I wanted to give this island a real feel-good-atmoshpere, but also give it a fresh and busy appearance. So I've added the well and the little paths. I can see tiny people almost wandering round on this path!
I added the trees later when I felt something was missing on in this little island.
I was having doubt about the little walls around the two cottages, but when I finished painting the island everything just seemed right!
I hope you will enjoy this little Dream Island just a much as I enjoyed making it!
