Hummingbird - A work in Progress

October 6, 2014


This last week I've been working on a new hummingbird drawing.  I really enjoy drawing birds.  

In this painting I have been using a technique I learned this summer at a Workshop in Springfield, Oregon.  The small grater is used to create a fine powder of Colored Pencil shavings. Next I take the Sofft Pastel Sponge and blend the powder into a selected area. This technique really speeds up the process of covering larger areas with color.  I also love the soft look it creates.

A closer look at the drawing. This piece is almost done.  I just have some fine tuning of the flowers and hummingbird.  

I also plan on using this image to create another Art Card.  Look for some new cards at my next show in November at the MissionViejo Artisan Faire.
