Original Creation


ForestVueGallery 06 Feb 2022

This is a Yarnell inspired Ruby Red Throat, my first ever attempt at a bird. There are things I will adjust next try.
I look forward to their return in mid March. 12x12 stretched canvas.

Very nice details

Voy Kay Conqueror of Challenges

WAW Debbie, such a magnificent creation!
That bird is awesome and shines most thanks to that unbelievable grass and flowers.
You really reached a high level with this painting!
A+++++ creation!

Hey Debbie.....this is awesome!!!!! Such a pretty pretty birdie. LOVE the background and the little flowers.....might have to look this one up and do after surgery....which is Monday, YEAH!!!!!

Very realistic. Wow.

Great job on the hummingbird! The highlights & shadows of the background are awesome as well!

Thank you Mgiese84, I learned patience with all the details!

Thank you Voy! I spent several sessions working on on this and the grass and flowers was the easy part.

Thanks Toadi! I had wondered if you had had the surgery and wish you a speedy recovery.
The flowers were very easy for my first time using a Black Gold by Dynasty No. 1 flat brush. They have a chiseled edge and are great for details. I'll be looking for your hummingbird!

Thank you Umagaan and flippergirl!

So awesome! Love all the details on the bird, just beautiful! The grasses and flowers excel also! Great job!

Thanks PB!
