Back to the birds. Another painting based on a photo reference Sweetie took in Costa Rica :) Only needs a bit of touches to finish it.
Remember that song, "hummingbird don't fly away, fly away, fly away...." Can't remember who sang it - a duo...Seals and Croft?
Here is a closeup so you can see the hummer (the painting is a half sheet watercolor on Arches 140# cold press paper). You can't see it but I put down irridescent medium on the globes and the hummer's body before painting (and his eye isn't filled in yet). Will show again when it's finished.
Are you having a good late spring/early summer so far? We have a mama deer and her spotted fawn hanging around in our yard and the neighbor's yard (the house was empty for a long time so they felt safe in the woods behind their house). The fawn stays over there because he's too tiny to jump the fence (yet), but mama comes over and eats our clover and violets and other stuff in our yard, including the bird seed I put out on the ground for Donald and Daisy (the two mallard ducks that visit our pool every spring). It is a nice menagerie of animals around here.
