This drawing was a blast to do. We all think of hummingbirds as shimmeringly colorful creatures so this picture needed some color to maintain its spirit. The obvious thing to do would be to put some color in the birds themselves. I thought it would be more fun to put the color elsewhere and let your imagination do the rest.
The windows presented their own peculiarities with a multitude of perspectives and shadowing and I went through about $60 worth of gladiolas to find just the right ones. I hope you like this one for it is a sentimental favorite of mine.
