Hummingbird watercolor

Posted Oct 28, 2019, 2:51:37 PM

A hummingbird I painted as a gift for my mother in law. She loves humming birds.

Mostly watercolor but some gouache

If anyone who's good with watercolor has suggestions/critique for me, that would be lovely.

    This is gorgeous, the details are done wonderfully. I really enjoy how the petals have the subtle variance in colors to show the "veins" of the plant, and how softly the feathers are defined.

    Watercolors is one of my favorite mediums. This is beautiful. A lot darker in tonality than a lot of watercolors I've seen, so its very unique. The coloring gives it vibrancy, depth and dynamism. I can almost see the hummingbird move <3

      Thank you! part of the reason it's dark is because i used some gouache which helps achieve darker colors
