I just finished another set of birds with a pair of cardinals and an oriole. They are all posted on Etsy if you want to see “Red” and his mate “Little Red” as well as “Notorious” a northern oriole.

I had the idea to make a mini demo of one of them to share how I paint them. You know, scanning it at various stages of WIP and explaining what I was doing. Of course, the one that I chose to document, a male ruby throated hummingbird, is the one that just did not turn out well! Funny how things go that way. I’ll try again next time.

If you’ve got a favorite bird you’d like to see or any thoughts on these, let me know. I’d love to hear from you!
