Painting Huge Landscapes In Tiny Tins

Painting Huge Landscapes In Tiny Tins

Landscape artist Remington Robinson captures paintings of huge mountain ranges, vast lakes and soaring cityscapes all within the tiny dimensions of a mint tin.

Although based in Boulder, Colorado, Robinson has travelled all over and painted the beautiful landscapes he’s witnessed inside the tiny Altoids mint containers he carries with him.

After finding the perfect location, Robinson initially sketches the landscape prior to painting.

Beginning in 2017, Robinson first saw other people painting inside the small mint containers and sought to try it for himself as a portable way to paint.

Robinson uses a new container for each painting, leaving the leftover paint in the tin to dry and become part of the final art piece.

The paintings take, on average, anywhere between 1-3 hours. However, some have taken as little as 30 minutes and others as much as 6 hours.
