Hummingbird Complete




The hummingbird is complete. What do you think? Can you tell a difference from the previous post?
I started 2 new watercolors-they're different than what I have been doing so I'm not sure I like them or not yet, and there's more work to do on both of them. More to come later...

Sistren Leslie,

You add joy and beauty to the world!

After just a quick glance, the only difference I see is the foot.

I can see the difference. More details and background. Lovely watercolor. I'm not even close to being a painter artist. My last use of watercolor was in grammar school. I was good at making black. (Mix all the colors together) Thanks for sharing the finished product.

LR-Thanks for the visit! The big difference is the background and I added some detail to the flowers. I guess it's hard to tell from the internet photos.

You're always so sweet to me and make me feel so good-thanks for that!
Love you-
Leslie


Bev-Thank you for stopping by-I appreciate it. I will have to come by and visit you and see how your show went. Good eye on seeing the changes to the watercolor-you're right on the $!

Sistren Leslie,

Funny, I was deliberately blocking out the background, because I thought I was supposed to be looking for differences in the bird itself, not the entire painting.

It was Sistren Bev's observation that let me know I was on the wrong path.

The next time you and J come down to Jamaica, please bring your art supplies. I want a mural on my back verandah.

Bless Up,
Lady Roots

I think you are a beautiful watercolorist, and I think that the increased background depth is very effective. I love your subject matter and can't wait to see your new paintings.

I read that you planning to do a Victory dance a little later, but we're already dancing over here at Amusing Muses, a dance of hope. So drop by and cut a rug with us, if you have a moment.

Happy Change Day!
Love,
Alberta
