Now I've started the painting. I have put in the stems and started the buds. I also added some black at the bottom of the painting to give it a little drama and set off the light coming in from the top.

Hummingbird - Foxglove work in progress
I have painted the background on the 16" x 20" canvas and started drawing in the floxglove. I think you can just barely make out the pencil marks. I lightly painted the outline of one flower stalk, but it is part of the background so it is not going to get any detail. Just vague shape and colour.
