Beautiful colors and fine feather details on the Hummer. Impressive brush strokes to achieve the silky like feathers.
Love the soft non distracting background you created.
Nice Painting :)

Such a fine and elegant piece of delicate subject. I know your mother will hang this with pride in her special chosen spot. Colours chosen for backdrop are perfect and natural to bring forward your choice of only two flowers and humming bird making an effective study of nature. I do wish we had these little angels over here in Scotland but they would need heavy coats on which might curtail their swift wing beats.

    Such a sweet review. They are beautiful creatures. Almost fairy like in their size and movement. Sad that you can not enjoy them as we do. Bless you in this New Year and I greatly thank you for the 6 stars.

Stunning nature artwork the colors are blended beautifully to show the hummingbird with perfect lines and texture. Like the background you have created. Excellent job :) Mary

    Thank you so much for lovingly reviewing this piece. Trying something different with the background wax a little concerning but it all worked in the end. Thank you again for taking the time to review.

Here's another 'Good Show' that you've created,Buffdenise!
The coloration throughout the scene ( especially that of the pleasantly 'Surrealistic' looking Hummingbird! ) is eye-catching and attractive!

Hi buffdenise,

Love the way your brushstrokes create a feathery look on the body and the wings of the bird. The way you did the tail feathers adds elegance and grace to this hummer. The background makes the hummingbird stand out. All the colors work wonderfully together. The whole look of this is VERY NICE!
NICELY DONE!
Helvi :o)

    Art to me is something that you enjoy. If it catches your eye then it's done the job of making your world a little brighter. I remember going to a Monet exhibit and some of his works actually brought me to tears they were so incredibly beautiful. It was difficult to think that what I was seeing had been created by paint,a brush, and man so long ago.

You have come along ways from the 4th grade. This has the look of the old Audubon photo plates. The century old look of the painting is full of movement and detail. The purple coneflowers are some of my favorite blooms. The humming bird may be a bit over sized but I still like him as he goes to work on the blooms.

Comment from RuJPmore


Very lovely painting of a hummingbird going in for a taste of the nectar. The muted yellow colors of the background brings out great detail of the bluish delicate bird and the lovely rose hue of the flowers. Thank for sharing your painting.

    Thank you for your review. I needed to use up these colors on my Palette and was so excited they worked so well together.
