Close Up Watercolor - Ruby-throated Hummingbird

Title: Ruby-throated Portrait
Size: 14 by 11 inches
This is a piece I did for my friend's birthday; she requested a hummingbird and, rather than paint the typical image of hummingbird (paused before a flower with wings beating), I decided to focus more on the detail of the feathers.

Normally I'm not fond of doing larger pieces (more than a half sheet of paper), but recently I find myself creating them more and more. For this painting, I think the greater size worked together with the texture, so that was good.

...And now that I'm posting this, I realize that this painting will match my blog's background rather nicely. Enjoy the in-theme moment! :P
