Green Little Hummingbirds

These little green hummingbirds have been really fun to paint, I used lots of bright inks to highlight how beautiful these jewel like creatures are without going overboard and leaving plenty of white space — an aspect which I’ve been struggling with.

I was using my fineliner pen to darken particularly bright areas in the face instead of mixing up darker water colour paint as I’m still a bit of a novice when it comes to mixing watercolour paint. 

The hummingbirds are available in my shop.
