"Have you ever observed a hummingbird moving about in an aerial dance among the flowers - a living prismatic gem.... it is a creature of such fairy-like loveliness as to mock all description."  ~ W.H. Hudson,Green Mansions

I'm still not 100% satisfied with this watercolor, but I am getting closer to what I want with this one. See more today about Drawing and Painting hummingbird wings in flight on SketchingEveryday .

  1. Artists are so hard on themselves. I think it is wonderful! I also like the quotes you have today. Everything here is inspiring!

  2. Thanks for your kind encouraging words Robin. :-D

  3. I see sweetness and light....just adorable.

  4. So pretty! I really admire anyone who can watercolor, let alone do it well as you can. I think it is the most difficult medium there is.

  5. Thanks Diane and Jessie. I am heartened by your friendly feedback!
