Original Watercolor Hummingbird Painting – Illustration Fine Art
This is a female Rufous Hummingbird she can be found in the summer within woodland and brushy habitats in North America.  This is a widespread and common species that tends to spend the winter months in pine-oak woodlands in Mexico.  Mainly feeding on nectar and insects they particularly like red tubular flowers but will take readily to hummingbird feeders.  The female will usually lay 2 eggs in a well hidden nest which is usually below 15 feet (4.57 m).  She will even recycle and refurbish old nests, I like the sound of that.

Packaging & Materials
I have used an excellent quality watercolour paper and the finest of brushes to produce the tiny details which bring this painting to life.

The painting will be carefully wrapped in cellophane and protected with additional packing.  Likewise I aim for my originals to arrive with you in the same condition that they left me.  I use the Royal Mail’s ‘Signed for Next Day’ or ‘International Tracked’ service.

A bit about me…

I love to capture the life within my paintings and also enjoy working with the watercolour medium to create fine detail.  I am continually adding to my portfolio and draw inspiration from amazing photographers and also the stunning North Devon environment.

Do you want to create your own original watercolor hummingbird painting?  Maybe take a look at becoming a member of my online school.  I feel that I have found my niche and I absolutely love teaching others.  Firstly, I find it extremely rewarding to be able to see the progress my students make.  Secondly I enjoy being able to interact directly with fellow wildlife artists.  Thirdly and most importantly I am able to share my love of the watercolour medium.  So take a look on YouTube or become a member and you may see this painting being created or learn how to paint your own version.
