Hummingbirds are such amazing little birds. It is such a pleasure doing hummingbird
Nature and all its beauty is awesome. When the light hits their iridescent
feathers, they shine like Jewels in the sunlight.
It is a challenge for the artist
to paint their iridescent feathers and catch their energetic flight. But, I
like a challenge.
their beauty shines thru in these paintings - enjoy!
Hummingbird" has a natural freedom with its iridescent
greens and blues. They also have an orange bill. Most other hummers
have dark bills.
The painting was done on watercolor canvas. It
is more difficult to get detail on the canvas. The colors slide around
on the canvas, so I did the delphinium flowers in a free style.
