Hummingbird Moth

In the summer I was admiring the out of control buddleia population in my garden, and wow, I couldn’t believe we had a hummingbird moth visit! They are so fast and stay perfectly still whilst feeding as their little wings whir like crazy, zipping all over the garden.

I used some tissue in the buddleias to give them a little more texture, and went a bit mental with the Brusho, but with the heavier stock 140lb watercolour paper but I think it looks great. I’m so happy with the painting that I’ve made him available buy in my shop.

Forgive me for my lapse in posting, I have a more personal project coming up which I can’t wait to announce to you all in a couple of short weeks.
