Kelly - Painting 72

...another in the hummingbird series!

All of our hummers have all gone south now. I miss them. I photographed this little female two years ago. She sat jealously guarding her nectar source! I sketched the bird from an old printout while I waited in the car for Matty. Then I used the sketch to create this watercolor.

She seems to have a bit of attitude and is beautifully painted. What size is this?
Love the way tou captured the detail and the softness of the feathers.

I love it! The details of all the feathers are wonderful - they look like I could reach out and feel them for real. Of course, if that was a real bird then it would quickly fly away.
