Day 251: A Birthday Hummingbird

Today’s offering is a special painting for a friend who’s living in America these days – Happy Birthday Adriana! Her son, Matthew, loves Hummingbirds, and I’m hoping she does too :-).

Taken straight from a ‘borrowed’ photo (unfortunately we don’t get Hummingbirds in Sydney) I’ve gone back to a realistic style for this one… something that’s easier for me to paint, and more recognisable for everyone else! Not sure about the background though, I sort of wish I’d made it green but it’s too late now.

As I scanned it in I also remembered that I was thinking of having a play with my watercolour crayons for this one, the colours would have been much more vibrant. Oh well, also too late now!
