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.
I am mainly a watercolor and Pastel artist but I am open to various mediums.
I have been painting since 1992.
I have travelled alot and have sold works and prints internationally. My works have also won awards. I used to be a member and for a short time president of a local art club however I found the Politics and Personalities interfered too much with my time that could be put into my work.
I live on the east coast of Canada and I paint our local beauty as well as the Carribean and the Mediterranean.
