Hummingbird Watercolour Painting

The colours can be varied these are just the ones I chose to use, cobalt blue, magenta, Peruvian red , grass green , flesh, white, charcoal grey and bright yellow.

I used watercolours as they are easily blend able and give better control over the over all out come if I am not sure of a colour as you can’t alter it down and mix in another until you are happy with the result.

Once the final piece is dry I use a windows to gage the direction of light and use white to highlight areas the light would hit naturally.
