It is a pleasure doing hummingbird paintings of God's flying jewels. These little birds pack so much color and personality. Their beauty shines through in these paintings - enjoy!
This hummingbird art is done on archival aquabord. It is a hard-board to
which a ph neutral kaolin clay had been applied.
After the watercolor
painting is thoroughly dry an acrylic fixative is sprayed on to protect
and preserve the hummingbird art for years of enjoyment.
Using my husband's hummingbird picture of a hummer on the feeder's perch
for reference I changed the Ruby-throat Hummingbird to an "Anna's Hummingbird".
The Anna Hummingbird has a flared rose colored gorget and the
same color on his head.
The red color on the hummer made a beautiful
painting with the red on the feeder.
