Nesting Anna's Hummingbird
I recently completed this large 18" x 28" acrylic painting for my sister and her husband who live in Carlsbad, California. They were able to photograph this little female and her nest which then became the inspiration for this painting. With specific colors in mind and making sure I made the bird the main focus, this is the resulting painting. They also were not concerned if the flower sizes were accurate in relation to the bird, so the composition worked well. I am really happy with how it came out!
