All in a Day's work

This is a 8x10 watercolor painting of a close up Hummingbird busily gathering nectar from some beautiful blue delphiniums. I started with an overall wash of lemon yellow to let the sunlight shine through everything. I often find it makes  my flowers  stand out but I do think it was a little overpowering in this piece. Beside regular watercolor I use my new inktense watercolor sticks in the delphiniums.The humming bird has some Faber Castell Pitt artist pen  used to outline and accent him.
