Hummingbird No. 1

Watercolor Painting of Hummingbird
Watercolor Painting of Hummingbird

I have finally finished my latest painting and have fallen in love with the rich colors and detail I was able to add to this it.  I wasn’t always enamored with this piece and thought about filing it away in the garbage can a few times.  I still struggle with the fact that watercolor paintings often don’t look very composed until the very end, and so at some points this bird looked like an hummingbird outlined colorblock quilt.  Good thing my daughter convinced me to keep forging ahead!  As colors started becoming richer and blank spaces filled in, layer after layer, the hummingbird came through.  I hope you enjoy this little fellow and thanks for viewing!
