Ruby Throated Hummingbird, Finished!

Finally finished this one... took me a little bit longer than I hoped. There is touches of iridescent and duochrome paint in the throat and head feathers for an extra touch of sparkle.

In other news, I've recently signed a new lease on a place and paintings may be sporadic over the next month due to the up coming move. I am going to be concentrating more on watercolour paintings over this time period since the oils take a little longer to dry.

Hi Madeleine,

I like the colours and the perspective is well chosen.
The composition is pleasant.

Best regards,
