Foxglove Humminbird Work in Progress - Small finished



It's snowing like crazy here today. It looks more like Christmas than it does spring. Not exactly inspiring for floral painting. After several attempts I am finally finished the small (8" x 10") Foxglove/Hummer painting. I re-painted the male several times before I came up with one that I liked. I wanted him to really "pop" in the painting because the sunlight is hitting him. The female is muted and "barely there". You can read all the details of this painting on the Ebay listing here
